Do the fish in your aquarium 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, Pet Playhouse in Plantsville, CT has the fish health and wellness products to bring them back to their normal, healthy selves. We also stock everything you need to keep your fish healthy.
The help prevent your fish from getting sick, feed them properly and don't congest the tank. Monitor temperature levels. Do your partial water replacements routinely. In some cases, however, despite your best efforts, diseases find their way into an aquarium. Here are some typical aquarium fish illnesses and the signs that your fish might be struggling with them:
Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, is the most common aquarium parasite. Signs of ich (pronounced "ick") are: elevated white spots, rapid 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 tinted dusting on the fish's body. There are also fish lice, anchor worms, flukes, and nematodes. Various signs and symptoms include irregular swimming, loss of shade, extreme mucous, difficulty 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 difficult to treat due to the fact that antibiotics can interrupt the aquarium and filter.
Fungal infections are much less frequent 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 talk with an expert regarding diagnosis and treatment. Pictures and videos can be helpful in conveying the symptoms you're seeing.

We have been treating our Great Dane for 2 yrs with liver disease, he was on expensive medication that I had to force down him . Unfortunately that medication is constantly back ordered , a bottle last 15 days and is 75$ ( yes because I have a giant dog). I still wasn’t getting any results from it. I started him on a supplement chew 6 months ago with only increments of 10 coming down in values if at all . I reached out to debbie, and we discussed some options… well we have been on “liver defense” for almost 5 weeks. I repeated necessary blood work and my boys values have dropped buy 140 points in just that little time . my boy is doing great and is only on vetri-science liver chews and liver defense , for his liver . The only results I’m seeing is after adding the defense! We are super thankful for your help debbie !! And we love you !!
Customer service here is incredible!! The owner brought to my attention that there was a recall on the food I was feeding my dog and turns out I had the recalled lot at home. My dog has food allergies. She helped me to find a replacement food and offered free samples and a refund for the bag of food that didn't work out. The owner called me the next day to see how my dog did with the new food. Really cares about animals. Best Customer service I have had in years. Great example of the importance of shopping local. Thank you Pet Playhouse!
