Rapid gill movement + swollen or discoloured gills. The fish are likely to stop feeding and may gasp either at the surface or laying motionless on the bottom.


Gill desease is caused by infections of fungi, bacteria and parasites. Also, poor water quality is likely to be a contributing factor.


Having good water quality is a good first step in treatment. This includes avoiding overfeeding and overstoking and carrying out frequent water changes. It may be necessary to add anti-bacterial treatments to the water. It also may be necessary to treat with formalin or copper based medicines if gill parasites are suspected.

Cotton looking growths on the body of the fish, its usualy greyish-white. Some deseases can be mistaken for fungus such as mouth fungus, which is usualy caused by bacteria.


"Fungal spores" are always present in the aqarium. An outbreak usualy occures after damage to a fishes skin or gill area, and as a secondary infection.


Their are commercial anti-fungal remedies that can be used to kill/destroy fungus and prevent it spreading. Most of the medications availible for treating fungal infections will also treat bacterial infections in case of mis-diagnosis.

The fins will become opaque and ragged, erosion of fin will most likelly continue until it reaches the base of the fishes fin, after this the fish will usually die.


Caused by various bacterial species, they are normally present in aquarium water, but will not infect healthy fish. The desease is usually triggerd by poor water quality, and/or whare fin damage has occured, wich is often caused by fin niping fish.


Commercial anti-bacterial remedies to kill the bacteria and stop the damage. These include Waterlife Myxazin, and Iterpet #8 Anti-Fungus and Finrot Maracyn by Mardel Labs.
