Do the fish in your aquarium look different? Do they have white patches, cloudy eyes, or ragged fins? Is their behavior unusual? Even well cared for fish can get sick, and when they do, Creature Comforts in Durango, CO 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 and balanced.

The help prevent your fish from getting sick, feed them properly and do not overcrowd the tank. Monitor temperature levels. Do your partial water replacements consistently. In some cases, however, in spite of your best efforts, diseases find their way into an fish tank. Below are some typical aquarium fish illnesses and the signs that your fish might be suffering from them:

Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, is the most common fish tank parasite. Signs of ich (pronounced "ick") are: raised 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, trouble breathing, and bloating or wasting.

After parasites, the most usual illnesses are bacterial infections, such as fin and tail rot. Symptoms of the bacterial disease are white film, cloudy eyes, ragged fins, and open sores. Bacterial infections are challenging to treat since prescription antibiotics can interfere with the aquarium and filter.

Fungal infections are much less regular and usually 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 regarding diagnosis and treatment. Pictures and videos can be helpful in communicating the signs and symptoms you're seeing.
