Health Assess For The Fish Tanks

Have you already encounter 1 day looking at your tank and visiting your fish sick?  It is such a bad sense and provides a sense of urgency especially if you are a newcomer at the hobby and does not understand that to do.  Thinking that a sick fish can harm other fish and make them ill is the worst.  Stay calm because we'll tackle a number of the most frequent treatments for these diseases on your fish tank.


Are you discovering any grayish color, cotton like thing sticking on the gills or the skin of your own fish?  This is most likely may have been a fungal infection.  This is due to decaying matters within your fish tank.  It can be easily cured with easy medications which you can purchase at the local fish shops.  Just make sure the next time to regularly clean out the water within your tank.

Parasites like flukes normally attack the gills or the skin of fish.  You'd notice if the fish is affected if it constantly rubs itself into the walls or ornaments within the tank.  You would also notice a cloudy appearance in the fish's skin.  This is mainly caused by bad water quality within the tank.
 This is so called because a symptom of the fact that fish will get small white spots in them.  This is primarily as a result of poor water quality and if the fish is stressed out.  As with any other disease, you can easily treat this, just be vigilant on symptoms and keep the water clean.

Another easy case to see is fin rot.  The fins are divided at a ragged fashion.  This is brought about by poor water quality and stressful state of fish.  Again, this can easily be treated with medication, but you need to treat this immediately.

Some suggestions on treating your aquariums with any medication:
1.  It is very important to read and follow the instructions on the labels of all the medicines.
2.  It is ideal to quarantine the affected fish onto a separate tank to lessen the spread of this disease.
3.  To improve water quality, it's ideal to replace at least 30 to 40 percent of the water at the tank.
4.  Always use water treatments to remove any contamination especially if you are using tap water.
5.  A smart tip is to remove the carbon first in your filtration device because this can absorb the medication that you added from the tank.

Always remember that like any other disease or sickness, prevention is far better than cure.  Regularly check the conditions of the water within the tank.  Do not just admire the beauty of the fish; also check any irregularities together.  There you have it.  I hope this helps and that your fish tank and fish are all nicely.
