aedes (aedis), is?

SALVETE OMNES!
I'm a bit confused over this entry:
aedēs (aedis), is, f., temple

1) Why is aedis within parenthesis? Is it the genitive declension?
2) Am I declining this correctly?
aedēs
aedis
aedī
aedem
aede

aedēs
aedum
aedibus
aedēs
aedibus
I hate Latin dictionaries...

aedis is an alternative nominative form. So you can have: aedes, aedis etc. or aedis, aedis etc.

Hope this helps.

Aedes, aedis is the more common form with aedis, aedis being a variant. In the plural it usually means "house". You declined it correctly, but the genitive plural would more properly be aedium because the nominative and genitive are parasyllabic.
