Fish Losing Weight

When your fish is losing weight, it can be a sign of serious problem, so further diagnosis and treatment is necessary. One of the main reasons for fish weight loss are parasites, as they are taking nourishment your fish would normally be receiving.

There are generally two types of fish parasites: ectoparasites, which are found on the external surfaces of the fish (skin, fins and gills) and endoparasites are typically found on the internal organs and tissues. Parasites can include, leeches, lice and anchor worms, which can be seen with the naked eye. Other indications are swelling or redness on certain surfaces of the fish, or the fish's tendency to rub or scrape itself against other surfaces.
