    Default quick diagnosis site

    a little oversimplified, and the "cure" for all of them is pretty much BUY OUR DRUGS!!!! But I've used it to do a quick symptom --> diagnosis match. Good long list of possible problems all in one place so you know what to google.

    Disease Chart

    I wouldn't buy most of their drugs though, a lot of this stuff can be fixed without em. What I use it for is to diagnose and then look elsewhere for further research and recommendation.

    One note of caution is to actually do some research on the ingredients in the medicine pack. Before you start dumping in medication just based on the list; please understand the effects of the medication on livestock.

    Different medication can have different potency level depending on the type of tank as well as livestock.

    Some advice on that link isn't the best solution either, so you should also try to find other sources and compare. Some solutions are just quick fixes and the problem will occur again if the root isn't targeted.
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    yeah, sorry if I wasn't clear about that, I use only the 2 left-hand columns and ignore the drug ads. Some of the stuff on there is just silly, like the "fingerprints on the glass" or "dirty sand" thing. The vast majority of this stuff can be fixed in other ways than drugs, but it's quicker than posting "why are they rubbing on the glass????" and then waiting for someone to answer and then cross-checking it with all the other answers and everything. It at least gives you something to google in case that's the problem you have. Also, it points out a few problems like putting in new fish and things, that aren't actually problems and will likely go away once the fish acclimate so you can stop panicking.

    Wow...learn something new everyday. Never heard of this disease-


    In all seriousness, not a bad site, even more surprising to find it as an advertisement.

    And to be honest while some of it may be crap I have had good luck with Jungle Labs products.
    Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?

    I see Dropsey but not bloat... Would the swim bladder look exactly like bloat?

    No, bloat and swim bladder are two different things but bloat can lead to swim bladder problems.Poor diet are causes of both.
    Constipation causes swollen abdomen and prevents the swim bladder from working properly.

    i wish i could force feed a pea to the fish that has it. The fish has been eating Cichlid Gold, Brine Shrimp and Hakari Blood Worms also I give them general Wardley Tropical flakes. if any of the food isnt up to standard please let me know. This is the first issue I have had with sickness in my fish of this type.
