Diseases of aquarium fish – the second part of the review

Welcome, dear readers of my blog. As I promised, today I post on the blog the second part of the review of diseases of aquarium fish.

By the way, who has not yet read the Diseases of aquarium fish – part 1, I advise you to read, as the list of diseases goes in order and some things overlap.

Dear readers, I have a request to you – take this article very seriously, because when I visit numerous forums on aquarism, I have repeatedly seen open topics where people cannot identify this or that disease. It is better that you are ready for such situations.

So, let’s go further on the disease.

Oodiniumosis

Oodinium disease is also an invasive disease of aquarium fish, which occurs as a result of the action of parasites flagellates – Oodinium, which live under the skin of fish. Thanks to its flagella, the parasite swims quietly in the aquarium water, and when it attaches to the body of the fish, over time it begins to penetrate under different parts of the skin of the fish.

Very often the fins, the skin, the oral mucosa and the gills “fall under the distribution”.

Oodinium disease can cause almost all the fish regardless of their age. Cardinals, nanostomuses, danios, various tooth-toothed, notobranchuses, puntiuses, and all kinds of creeper are most susceptible to the disease. But cichlids are considered the most resistant to this parasite, although they can easily carry on themselves these flagellates.

Adults, unlike fry, are exposed to the parasite significantly less. Very rarely there are cases of mass death of fish from this disease, in extremely rare cases, young animals may die.

When a fish is sick with odineumosis, small nodules of gray or golden color form on the skin and fins. After some time, the skin begins to break down the skin in some parts of the body. A little later, the fins of the fish are destroyed.

Those parts of the body of the fish, which were amazed, become over time brownish in color. The skin is covered with mucus, which can later lead to a violation of gas exchange. According to the behavior of the fish, this disease is difficult to determine, as the fish behave differently.

Some individuals become very restless, some begin to itch either on the ground or on plants and stones. Those fish that have already had time to get sick with oodinium, have relative immunity.

For the treatment of this disease uses solutions of green malachite, copper sulfate, bitsillin-5. The solution of medicines in the aquarium should be made after 7-10 days and so treat their fish for a month.

In order to prevent oodiniumosis, use quarantine of aquarium fish that you just bought, treat the fish in medical baths before you plant in a common aquarium.

That’s probably enough for today, the second part of the review of aquarium fish diseases is over, and another one is on the way – the final part. In general, care for aquarium fish thing is not difficult, but still it requires some effort.
