I realized yesterday I wasn't sure (altho I'm FW right now, so it's irrelevant) how to pronouce 'wrasse'. . .

www.m-w.com :

Pronunciation: 'ras
Function: noun

Well, that helps like none.

Wrasse is "Rass" (rhymes with bass, as in the fish, not the instrument!)

Ok, some general and specific ones here...

Characin - is the c an s sound or a ch sound?

Chalceus Macrolepidotus. I've always gone CHAL - see - us Mak - ro - LEP - ee - doh - tus. Any thoughts?

Also, Chalceus Erythrurus - Air - RITH - roo - rus ?

Characin is neither "s" nor "ch," but rather "K" as in CARE-a-sin.

Your other pronunciations are the way I would say them, but I'll defer to Toirtis on those.

Now for the fun ones... the catfish! Plecostomus, coryduras, synodontis...

...anyone know about those otocinculus? I've personally pronounced the first "c" like an "s" and the second one like a "k", but I have no idea whether this is correct...
