  1. Default Need advice on mysterious sickness


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi All, I'm new to AC but an experienced fish keeper of Rainbows. It is rare for me to ever have sickness or death in my tanks, but since moving from S. NV to N. Nevada I have lost a few here and there. At the moment I have a male Parkinsoni rainbow who has stopped eating & is hanging out by himself. He doesn't appear to be in any distress and doesn't have any visible injury or sickness. There are a couple small grey spots on his body, but these fish are naturally blotchy so maybe it is age.

    About every 3-4 weeks I seem to have a sick fish that will eventually die, because I really don't know how to treat an invisible illness. My water tests good except for high ph, they are somewhat accustomed to from S Nevada. I do have to use more Aquasafe as I used to, to handle killing all the minerals & chemicals in the water. Is something in the water doing them in? I really need to get this under control before I lose anymore of my fish. There is little resource here to replace them, on top of the disappointment of losing a fish. Any ideas? Thanks............Carson Fishgirl

    It could be an internal parasite killing them off!
    What are you feeding them?
    NLS fish food is excellent and contains garlic.Garlic is great for getting rid of them.On the left in the Articles column there is a fish disease section you can read through!
    What are the perameters?

  3. Default parkinsoni's diet

    Thanks for the idea. What is the food you recommended? I haven't heard of it. Believe it or not, there are only saltwater fish stores around here & even in Reno NV. If I want to get fish food I need to either order by mail or get at Petco. If you'll give me the full name, I'll try it. Do parasites give any visual symptoms? Like I said, this fish looks pretty normal on the outside. I will check the diseases section & see what I can find. THe water made me suspect, but I suppose that a parasite could have come in there even, or on a plant. I appreciate any ideas you all come up with. Thanks.
