Isn't there an internet based superstition that if you type all the letters of pleco then you jinx your tank and the fish will die? 8O In print it should be pl*co.

I just say plec. No "oh" at the end.

There's something like that. But I don't believe it. I've been saying Pleco for a long time online and I've only had 2 die. One was before I joined AA and the other was because of tank conditions. But yeah, some people believe if you say Pl*co, they won't have the "curse"

Oh... I think the pleco superstition is just silly but it's kind of funny.

Mbuna sounds hard to say and would be worst if I have to pronounce every letter
