 I  agree  u,  but  a  lot  of  people  using  abbreviations.  New  comers  to  the  forum  find  it  difficult.  Are  else  the  adminstrators  should  have  a  link  in  the  left  corner  where  we  find  forum,  faq,  content  to  the  abbreviations

 Try  to  avoid  abbreviations  and  SMS  type  language.  
 
 A  little  more  effort  on  your  part  will  help  everyone.
 
 On  a  post  using  the  full  form  of  the  word  at  least  once  in  the  beginning  of  the  post  would  be  ideal.
 
 The  very  idea  of  this  forum  is  to  help  the  novice  and  that  purpose  would  be  defeated  if  we  use  abbreviations  randomly.

 Red  belly  piranha  is  not  the  same  as  a  pacu!  Many  people  think  so.  The  look  very  similar  when  they  are  juveniles,  but  piranhas  are  very  agressive,  territorial  and  meat  eaters  that  dont  let  any  other  fish  survive  in  the  tank.  Whereas  the  pacu  grows  to  an  enormous  size  but  is  a  gentle  giant.
