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.
