Learning the lingo!

Recommended Posts

I have noticed quite a few acronyms used in the forums some of which I have seen before and some are completely new to me but I have far too much pride to ask what they mean.

Anyway here are a few I know of, please add any others you can think of.

 

CUC = Clean Up Crew

 

LFS = Local Fish Shop (or 'Store' for my American friends)

 

LR = Live Rock

 

LS = Live Sand

 

FO = Fish Only

 

FOWLR = Fish Only With Live Rock

 

LPS = Large Polyped Stony (corals)

 

SPS = Small Polyped Stony (corals)

 

RO = Reverse Osmosis

 

RO/DI= Reverse Osmosis/DeIonised

 

DSB = Deep Sand Bed

 

SSB = Shallow Sand Bed

 

GSP = Green Star Polyps

 

MH = Metal Halides

 

TDS = Total Dissolved Solids

 

 

Please feel free to add any I have missed B)

One term that confused the heck out of me when I first started was 'Fuge'. Took me a while to realize it was short for Refugium. :)

 

Another was 'cheato' which again, took me a while to realize it was a mis-spelling of Chaeto. :)

If you don't see a term in the glossary, then add it there. Threads like this will keep on popping up and dying out, unless they are stickied. That's what the glossary is for: a permanent location that can be searched easily.
