Bacterial and Fungal Aquarium Medications

Fish fungal infection is usually caused by poor tank conditions and fish health. Symptoms include white, fluffy growths or greying tissue. Cotton wool disease in fish is one common type. Fin rot is another common fish fungus. Symptoms include streaks and rotting on fins. For fish fungus treatment, an anti-fungal medicine like API Melafix will work.

Fish bacterial infection is sometimes harder to spot. Fish bacterial infection symptoms include loss of appetite, lesions and ulcers, and lethargy. Fish popeye, while usually a physical injury, can also be secondarily infected by bacteria. To treat fish bacterial infection, look for an antibacterial medicine like Furan-2.

We recommend you contact a veterinarian before administering any fish medicine.
