Parasitic Infections Of Gills in Fish

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

After quarantining the infected fish(es) and thoroughly cleaning the fish's environment, the water of the tank, aquarium or fishpond should be changed and treated with formalin and praziquantel. These medications will kill all parasites, their eggs and their larvae.

 

Prevention

 

Keeping the fish's environment clean and well maintained will help prevent parasite-ridden water.
