Great List!

I did notice that you suggested folks could contact you "via PM". I recall a time when I didn't know what a PM was, so perhaps include it with the "IMO, WTB, OTOH" and such?

Thanks!

Oh, other suggestions:

VERY Basic (maybe TOO Basic?)

FW = Freshwater
SW = Saltwater

and for the FW shrimp crowd:

RCS = Red Cherry Shrimp (Neocardinia denticulata sinensis var 'Red' )
CRS = Crystal Red Shrimp
BB = Bumble Bee Shrimp

(sorry, don't know the scientific names of the others w/o looking it up)

Thanks!

I thaught it was RAOK. Random Act Of Kindness.

MTS could also mean Multiple Tank Syndrome. A few of us suffer from the contagious disorder.

This is absolutely helpful. I saw 'lol' here and there. I would like to know what does it mean.

Cation (NH4+, K+, Ca2+, Fe2+, etc...) Exchange Capacity (CEC) is defined as the degree to which a soil can adsorb and exchange cations.
