Aquarium Abbreviations

Sometimes it gets really difficult to keep track of all the abbreviations in the aquarium hobby. This thread is here so people can find out what some of them mean.

For example:
RCS=Red Cherry Shrimp
LFS=Local Fish Store
BN=Bristlenose Pleco

Those are the ones I can think of now, please post more.

Is that a real abbreviation, or did you make that up? 😄
