Hi All. You may remember that I had all manner of fish diseases over about a year until I worked out that heavy metals were degraded the immune system of my fish. Whilst posting to another thread I realised I have a lot of photos of sick fish. So here they are, with my (mis) diagnosis:

"Lateral Line and Hole In The Head Disease"

I dunno, probably just flexi bacter though it could be "Dropsy" - I definitely had it at some stage, but I didn't get a photo of the lump...

Nice Gemmel, thanks. Great idea, so good I'm going to copy it ;-)
I'm cross posting here my aeromonas bacteria.

Wikipedia wrote:
Aeromonas hydrophila is a heterotrophic, gram-negative, rod shaped bacterium, mainly found in areas with a warm climate. This bacterium can also be found in fresh, salt, marine, estuarine, chlorinated, and un-chlorinated water. Aeromonas hydrophila can survive in aerobic and anaerobic environments. This bacterium can digest materials such as gelatin, and hemoglobin. Aeromonas hydrophila was isolated from humans and animals until the 1950s. This bacterium is the most well known of the six species of Aeromonas. It is also very hard to kill, because it is a very resistant bacterium. Aeromonas hydrophila is resistant to chlorine, refrigeration or cold temperatures.

Finrot - I think

Anyone had a fish (tilapia in the case) swimming in tight, slow circles on the bottom of the tank....and when he died and floated up, was locked in a curved position (the same body position that he had whilst circling) in a kind of rigor mortis state?

Another photo of ICH - those little white spots are a dead giveaway!

Hi guys,.
was going to post separately, but this seems to be a very appropriate thread. My trout have been dying about one a day for the last month or so. I've bumped up the air, added filters..

Im wondering whether its metal poisoning. I have them in a galvanised tank, which has a polymer coating on the inside. The polymer coating has ended up a strange coloured ring (yellow/orange). Also, there are steel struts in the middle which act as a support for the tank. Im wondering whether some of this metal is causing poisoning.. any thoughts?

Thanks,
Todd

What did that set you back?

They don't have an office in adelaide, but there's a govt place that seems to do something similar.. Interested to see the price differences around the country for that sort of thing..

To be honest, I don't remember. It was about $100 I think.
