Do the fish in your fish tank look different? Do they have white spots, cloudy eyes, or ragged fins? Is their behavior unusual? Even well cared for fish can get sick, and when they do, Waggin' Wheels Pet Supply in Elizabethtown, PA has the fish health and wellness products to bring them back to their normal, healthy selves. We also supply everything you need to keep your fish healthy.
The help prevent your fish from getting sick, feed them properly and don't overcrowd the tank. Monitor temperature levels. Do your partial water replacements regularly. In some cases, however, in spite of your best efforts, diseases find their way into an aquarium. Here are some typical aquarium fish illnesses and the signs that your fish could be experiencing them:
Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, is the most common fish tank parasite. Signs of ich (pronounced "ick") are: raised white spots, quick breathing, rubbing against ornaments, or darting about the tank. There are medications and other treatments available for ich.
Other parasites include chilodonella, with symptoms similar to ich, and oodinium, also known as rust, gold, or velvet dust disease, which causes an strangely colored dusting on the fish's body. There are also fish lice, anchor worms, flukes, and nematodes. Different symptoms include unpredictable swimming, loss of shade, excessive mucous, trouble breathing, and bloating or wasting.
After parasites, one of the most usual illnesses are bacterial infections, such as fin and tail rot. Signs and symptoms of the bacterial disease are white film, cloudy eyes, rough fins, and open sores. Bacterial infections are challenging to treat because antibiotics can interrupt the fish tank and filter.
Fungal infections are much less regular and often take the form of cotton-like growths.
Viral infections occur in goldfish and koi but are less common in other aquarium fish.
If you see or suspect any of these issues in your fish, it's a good idea to speak with an expert about diagnosis and treatment. Pictures and videos can be helpful in conveying the signs and symptoms you're seeing.
