    Anyone has info on Oddyum/Oddium; not the band but a disease

    Oodinium is the correct spelling. Should help vastly for google searches :)

    Tons more out there. I justt did a quicky for you and didn't interject any of my thoughts (no time) :)

    Thx Gresh, Theres a newby in Mexico whom, after three months of having nothing more than pristine water conditions, all parameters checked, added a to, mean TON of large fish into a considerable size tank, most of them died and was asking for HELP !! then when he was reprimanded for doing it so, after he was told to give it time.
    To most people is a new tank syndrome and he's stubborn and insults people who try to help or gets too rough, he tried that on me but I think I made him look back and calm down on that aggressive behavior or so it seems; anyway, the spelling of the disease was given to me like that and all I could google was the band, metal band...
    Reefing in Mexico takes some people to neanderthal times when they feel threatened.
    Now I opened a new post to get people to be aware of such disease, will have to translate it but is for the good of the marine life in the end. Can only hope he learns his lesson, that is to appreciate life other than the one we are given, the one we intent to care for.

    Again thank you !!

    try "Formalin 3" great fish dip medicine for parasites. I use this to treat flukes, fungi & parasites. Since FW dipping wont work since this parasite lives in both salt and fresh.. meds are the only way to kill it.

    another good one is "PraziPro"

    Gonna need to catch them and either QT them of dip them for treatment.

    Both of those products work great as dips, not sure whats available in Mex, but when I've been down there, the pharmacia has been a very nice place to visit, they are way more open minded than ours ;) so I'd imagine the same goes for other substances procured from other places....

    You are right on that one Jeremy; he's treating with Cuppramine, THE WHOLE SYSTEM !!
    Told him about the risks of future use as a reef tank but seems to be a stubborn, spoiled rich brat that must have his way; does not listen to people who are willing to help and keeps insulting and threatening via PM to other members; one of those cases of omnipotence; hope he gets banned from the site and gives up on the hobby.

    Thx for the help guys !!
