Fish Skin Problems

Fish skin problems can come in the form of parasites, bacterial or fungal infections, ich or white spot disease, or injury. Early diagnosis and treatment is important, as any can progress to greater seriousness, and can be fatal to your fish.

Since skin problems in your fish cover a wide range it can be difficult to easily diagnose which specific problem your fish has without a examining a sample skin scrape under a microscope. Care should be used for this procedure, so as not to further injure your fish. Parasitic disease and injury are some of the easiest to spot, however.

Some signs of fish skin problems include reddening or inflammation, raised scales, open wounds, raised scales, lesions, or other discoloration. The type of problem can be indicated by which symptom is encountered.
