Aquarium Husbandry (and attempts at pronunciation) of
Scott Womack (April 2009)
I can certainly type the name, but damned if I’m sure of its pronunciation.
In the past, I have written a couple of articles on species that I have kept and bred, and for those, I tried to perform as much research as possible so that I can at least pretend to know what I am writing about. But I have searched high and low for a phonetic spelling of “grammodes” with no luck…and it’s kind of bugging me. I have asked some of my fish keeping friends about the pronunciation of “that fish” and I have received the following (pardon my own crude phonetic spelling):
I really don't know why I tried this.
Today, while on a particularly boring conference call, I searched on iTunes using the keyword "cichlid" .
Wouldn't you know it, there is an album called Cichlid by the artist A Riley!
I only previewed one of the songs (they're all marked explicit) and its not really my taste.
There is one song called "Kill Myself" which I sometimes feel like doing when I can't get my fish to breed, but that's a story for another day.

The Greater Chicago Cichlid Association — GCCA — is a not-for-profit, educational organization, chartered in the state of Illinois, dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of information relating to the biology of the fishes in the family Cichlidae, with particular emphasis on maintenance and breeding in captivity. We are simply cichlid hobbyists who love cichlids.
