Signs of Parasites in Pond Fish

Signs of parasites in pond fish can set fear in the heart of any pond owner. You’ll need to know the basics of pond care and when to call a veterinarian, just in case the problem gets out of hand.

The best way to prevent any real catastrophes in your outdoor pond is to be well educated as to the operation of the pond and what the signs of problems might be. You can do this by ensuring that you have a good pond care book and that you read it regularly. You will be able to find good books in local pet stores, pet supply warehouses or from various Internet websites.

Behavior can be one of the better signs of parasites in pond fish. You will want to observe your pond and the fish which live in it daily. You will become accustomed to the personalities of your fish and you will begin to notice any subtle differences in their behaviors. If you see something which concerns you, go look it up in your pet care book. Things which should concern you are wagging back and forth, excessive darting, rubbing the sides of the pond, lethargy, fish which stay at the surface of the bottom of the pond, and a failure to eat. Each of these symptoms can mean different illnesses.
