Do the fish in your fish tank 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, The Grooming Place Pet Shop in Chester, MD 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.
The help prevent your fish from getting sick, feed them properly and don't congest the tank. Monitor temperature levels. Do your partial water replacements on a regular basis. Occasionally, however, in spite of your best efforts, diseases find their way into an aquarium. Below are some typical aquarium fish illnesses and the signs that your fish could be dealing with them:
Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, is the most common aquarium parasite. Signs of ich (pronounced "ick") are: raised white spots, quick breathing, rubbing against accessories, 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, aka rust, gold, or velvet dust disease, which triggers an strangely colored dusting on the fish's body. There are also fish lice, anchor worms, flukes, and nematodes. Various signs and symptoms include unpredictable swimming, loss of color, too much mucous, difficulty breathing, and bloating or wasting.
After parasites, the most usual diseases are bacterial infections, such as fin and tail rot. Symptoms of the bacterial disease are white film, cloudy eyes, rough fins, and open sores. Bacterial infections are tricky to treat because prescription antibiotics can disrupt the aquarium and filter.
Fungal infections are less frequent and usually take the form of cotton-like growths.
Viral infections occur in goldfish and koi but are much less common in other aquarium fish.
If you see or suspect any of these issues in your fish, it's a good idea to talk to an professional regarding diagnosis and treatment. Pictures and videos can be helpful in conveying the signs and symptoms you're seeing.

I love The Grooming Place! First off, they sell so many products from toys, leashes collars, beds, pet food, etc. and everything is reasonable priced, I like seeing the furry friends in there too! I bring my Golden Retriever and my Chiweenie here to get they’re toenails trimmed, and they do a FANTASTIC job! My girls get very anxious and scared, but not at The Grooming Place, the Groomer was very calm, confident and soothing with both my dogs to where they actually enjoyed the experience. The price being only $6.00 per dog for toenail trimmings makes it even better! I found my go to place, I love supporting small, local businesses! Keep up the great work staff!
