Fish Disease Remedies

Since the early 1900s Tricker's hatcheries have been breeding and raising fishes. Fish are subject to a wide spectrum of diseases. They are affected by water temperature, pH, osmotic pressures, dissolved gases, and other elements. These also determine whether or not a disease agent can or will cause disease in a fish.

Ich (ichthyophthiriasis) is a prevalent disease that fish contract. It's caused by a microscopic protozoan that causes white spots in the skin and gills of the fish. Ich damages the protective skin of the fish and bacteria or fungi may invade the fish. The best control of ich is prevention. New plants and fish can introduce unsuspected ich. An excellent preventative measure is to treat your pond before adding fish or plants.
