Whirling or Wobbling Fish

You’ll need to watch your aquarium or pond for subtle changes to keep it a healthy environment for your fish, including watching your fish for symptoms like whirling or wobbling. These two activities may signal that there are serious problems in your tank or pond.

Whirling disease can take out your entire setup. It is caused by a parasite which immobilizes fish. Symptoms begin when a fish no longer seems powered by his tail and uses his head to swim, thus the name, whirling. Additional things to look for include: the fish’s spine being bent in different directions, darkening of the tail fin, and head deformities. It is spread by the sharing of water that is infected. If water is believed to be infected, it should be microscopically confirmed, although there are other high-tech tests which can also confirm presence of the parasite.
