Do the fish in your aquarium look different? Do they have white patches, cloudy eyes, or rough fins? Is their behavior unusual? Even well cared for fish can get sick, and when they do, One Stop Country Pet Supply in Barre, VT has the fish health and wellness products to bring them back to their normal, healthy selves. We also stock everything you need to keep your fish healthy and balanced.
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 frequently. Sometimes, however, despite your best efforts, diseases find their way into an aquarium. Below are some typical aquarium fish diseases and the signs that your fish could be experiencing them:
Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, is the most common aquarium parasite. Signs of ich (pronounced "ick") are: elevated white spots, rapid breathing, rubbing against ornaments, 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 oddly tinted dusting on the fish's body. There are also fish lice, anchor worms, flukes, and nematodes. Various symptoms include erratic swimming, loss of shade, too much mucous, difficulty breathing, and bloating or wasting.
After parasites, one of the most typical 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 difficult to treat because prescription antibiotics can disrupt the fish tank 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 speak to an specialist regarding diagnosis and treatment. Pictures and videos can be helpful in communicating the symptoms you're seeing.

Love this pet store. Knowledgeable staff, well stocked and clean. They are willing to special order and they carry a wide variety of "top shelf" products.
Nice small shop
Buy local! Knowledgeable staff, plenty of dog food options.
Expanded ! So much of a great selection.
They have a fantastic staff who are all very helpful. They almost always have what I'm looking for and the few times they haven't had it They have told me where else I can get it. It's a lot cheaper than pet Co, and who doesn't love a local business. 10/10 will go again.
