Hello, friends! Today I would like to talk about such a misfortune called neon disease. This sore is found in aquariums lovers of beautiful fish much more often than we imagine.
It so happened that harazinki are most susceptible to this disease, and moreover, not only neons suffer from this filth.
Neither barbs, nor guppies, nor rasbora are insured against this disease, so you need to be as careful as possible when choosing where to buy new aquarium fish. Do not take them from dubious people in the markets and in petty pet shops, otherwise there may be trouble.
It is better to buy fish from proven people from whom you have made more than one purchase, they will definitely not give you any nasty things.
As it turned out, goldfish can be carriers of this neon sore. This infectious disease is caused by a fungus that penetrates the cells of the fish and into the various cavities of the fish.
In this infectious disease, there is a high neonchik mortality rate, which significantly distinguishes this ailment from the others. Unfortunately, medications against this filth do not yet exist, so infected fish can immediately be flushed down the toilet, as they cannot be saved.
And how to distinguish this filth among other other diseases? Many neons affected by this fungus become dull in color.
On neons, this can be seen when the glowing strip fades along its entire length. In addition, when this disease is disgusting, sick fish instead of flocks prefer to stay apart, lose their appetite, lose weight before their eyes, become very restless at night and swim tail down.
The next stage is a sunken belly and fins are destroyed. The longer the parasite is in the body of the fish, and the longer it swims in the general aquarium, the greater the risk of infection of the entire aquarium.
If some fish have no symptoms, it still does not mean anything. The sore spreads through sick fish, plants, soil and water.
If, nevertheless, you did not manage to save your inhabitants from plastophorosis (neonovoy disease), then all the fish living in the general aquarium should be destroyed, and the water itself should be properly disinfected, and the soil should be ignited. However, there is still a false “neon disease”, which is difficult to separate from the present.
