POSTING CONTESTS COMING
Coming soon is a series of contests with some amazing prizes from Ecotech, Tunze, Neptune, Bulk Reef Supply, Air Water and Ice along with a host of other supply and food partners. Registered members of CDMAS are entered to win by simply posting on CDMAS (creating a forum post, adding a link, submitting an article, sharing a CDMAS resource of social media, adding to your user profile, or referring a new member). Our point system will help you keep track of your postings (your point score can be found in your user profile). The system will randomly award each prize from users who have received automatic entries by posting. Winners will be notified via email with instructions on how to pick up your prize. Good luck!!!
The new CDMAS Marketplace gives registered members a free opportunity to buy and sell anything related to the hobby. You can create a fixed price listing with a buy it now (BIY) price, best offer or run a eBay like auction (even setting minimums).
This is, without a doubt, the most frequent and common problem that anyone who has a saltwater fish must eventually deal with, sooner or later. One would think that with the constant battle that we as hobbyist must endure with this creature, that there would be a great deal more detail available. As with anything concerning life within our systems, it is of great benefit to us in knowing the needs in detail, of everything we keep by design or by accident. I doubt many of us would have much success with our aquariums if we made wild assumptions as to how life is possible within our systems. If we know the details of any given animal or system, we stand a much better chance to succeed. The same can be said of those life forms that we do not desire to be in our little ecosystems. If we can understand their needs, we are much better able to attack or remove one of the needs and defeat it. As the old saying goes, KNOW THY ENEMY.
Note how this parasite burrows under the fishes skin and gills, the white spots that are seen are not the parasites, but the skin reaction of the fish.
