'dirtritus' for 'detritus'

This may work more easily for the more arhotic of us, but I imagine it could have traction further afield.

Some people will say that you need flow to prevent dead zones where dirtritus builds up but I have nice flow all over the tank.

Like Dirtritus, and Bacteria are the only critters that can survive in our class. All my classmates leaned what they ate and what ate

I was getting ready to do a gravel on this day and noticed all the dirtritus that had accumulated in the substrate …

skirting boards etc caked with dust and dirtritus bedside tables and lamps grubby moved table slightly to retrieve a dropped coin, to reveal all manner of horrors!

Re: 'dirtritus' for 'detritus'

Works for me! (And I love arhotic. I actually was pronouncing ar-hotic and trying to figure out what kind of word was that when I twipped (watheh than tumbled) into it.)

Arhoticism is a lot less interesting than it at first appears. Ditto arhotic art/ahht.
