Causes: the Causative agent of this disease is Cryptocarion irritans, which is a kind of analogue of the freshwater “ihti”, parasitic on tropical marine fish. It looks similar to its freshwater counterpart, but smaller (0.5 mm), besides the horse-Shoe macronucleus cryptocaryon malorazlichimyh, while Ichthyophthirius it is visible quite clearly. But the cycles of development and lifestyle of Cryptocarion irritans and Ichthyophthirius multifiliis are the same.
Symptoms: Sick fish dotted with numerous, with a diameter of 0.5 mm, white small knobs. The infestation appears first on the fins, and later goes to the body.
Current: Cryptocarion irritans infects the gills and skin of marine fish. The causative agent is under the top layer of the epithelium is filled with a gelatinous mass of leathery bag.
This pathogen, due to the same lifestyle, same causes harm to as Ichthyophthirius multifiliis.
Treatment: Can be recommended transplanting method, ultraviolet irradiation or chemotherapy, as with Ichthyo – phthirius. Effective there is also treatment with 1.5 mg/l of copper sulfate. Continue reading
Group decorative landscape modeling Sevastopol marine aquarium professionally engaged in the creation of artificial landscapes for zoo – and water parks, aquarium and Museum exhibits. Our group also has extensive experience in the application of simulations of rocks, waterfalls, caves, ancient ruins, etc. for decorating the surrounding areas, walls, swimming pools and interior decoration.
Group decorative landscape modelling was established in 1994 to perform work on the creation of a new exposition at the reconstruction of one of the halls of the Sevastopol Marine Aquarium. In the result were designed and built scenery simulating landscapes of the habitats of animals, on display in the Aquarium.
During its existence (about 15 years) our group has implemented several major projects. These include the complex “the bears continent” in the Kiev zoo, where he created a simulated rocky landscape with waterfalls and a stream, and the exhibition “Karst cave” in the building of the Water information center in the Park downtown.

eternal struggle, he has no right to life”.
Dear reader, this article focuses on the predators freshwater aquarium. Online wanders a lot of tall tales on the subject, to the extent that Angelfish is fierce predators of the aquarium.
Therefore, before to lay out our selection of predatory fish, let us define the concepts.
All animals can be divided into carnivores and herbivores:
