    What's an AEFW? I'm guessing from context it's some type of parasitic flatworm. Is that right?

    Edit: Nevermind. Acro Eating FlatWorm. Mods can delete this post. Thanks.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the information. Being new to the site and to the saltwater community I was wondering what some of the acronyms meant. Very helpful, thank you.

    I usually read on my cell phone: I don't think the mouse over works. I'm glad this is a sticky so I can refer to it whenever I need to. Is there a similar list of terms/glossary?
