I finally found one that isn't locked!

I liked the split between aquaria and general colloquialisms. I was thinking a few more sections -- common aquaria, plants, technical (or advanced) freshwater, technical (or advanced) saltwater, something along those lines. The abbreviations we see everyday are a little lost among abbreviations that are used infrequently or only in specialized areas.

But overall…

Nice job Childawg :D . It should be a great help to many.

Thanks, Carpguy. As it grows, the project will look more and more like what you have described, but I wanted to get a first-ditch effort up before I did anything too fancy...I'll get to that point, though! :)

XLNT! How'd we all miss--

Ich -- Ichthyophthirius, a ciliate parasite.

Plus, how about

KMnO4-- potassium permanganate, an oxidizer

H2O2-- hydrogen peroxide

And, if you have Oto (or "Otto") how about

Ram-- Microgeophagine cichlid

No clue how I missed Ich, but it'll be in the next update! Good points, Wetman, and I am thankful that you caught those!
