GENERAL DIAGNOSIS OF PARASITIC DISEASES OF FISHES
The following brief summary of clinical signs often associated with the parasitic protozoans discussed above is intended only as an aid for the beginning aquarist. It is not to be thought of as a definitive diagnostic key. It is also important that the aquarist or pond keeper consult appropriate, accurate references for more specific information regarding disease problems of fishes. In addition, if possible, skin and/or gill smears should be made and examined by a qualified fish diagnostician. Microscopic examination is recommended and is always essential for confirmation of a particular disease. In the clinical signs indicated below, a particular description may be followed by a specific disease causing organism in brackets. It should be qualified that different clinical signs can be seen during the disease process and that these can occur as the result of more than one disease causing organism.
Increased respiration; loss of normal body color; presence of discrete white spots (freshwater or marine Ich); white areas on the body with circumscribed red perimeter [Epistylis]; scratching on tank bottom or on objects; lethargic behavior; white tufts or strands on body [Fungus]; dust like "peppered" spots on body surface, having a yellowish cast [Oodinium].
