Scientific names


Recommended Posts

The Australian Cichlid Enthusiasts Inc. advocates the use of scientific names (where sensible) of livestock rather than common names. This helps avoid the possibility of confusing one species with another and giving incorrect or irrelevant advice.

A good knowledge of scientific names will be beneficial for all fishkeepers in the long term.

Also on a point of taxonomy - the species part of the scientific name always has a little letter. So, Parachromis managuense is correct, while Parachromis Managuense is wrong.
