Do the fish in your aquarium look different? Do they have white spots, cloudy eyes, or ragged fins? Is their behavior unusual? Even well cared for fish can get sick, and when they do, Odyssey Pets in Dallas, TX has the fish health and wellness products to bring them back to their normal, healthy selves. We also stock everything you need to keep your fish healthy and balanced.
The help prevent your fish from getting sick, feed them properly and don't overcrowd the tank. Monitor temperature levels. Do your partial water replacements regularly. In some cases, however, even with your best efforts, diseases find their way into an fish tank. Below are some common aquarium fish diseases and the signs that your fish may be struggling with them:
Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, is the most common aquarium parasite. Signs of ich (pronounced "ick") are: elevated white spots, rapid breathing, rubbing against accessories, or darting about the tank. There are medications and other treatments available for ich.
Other parasites include chilodonella, with symptoms similar to ich, and oodinium, also known as rust, gold, or velvet dust disease, which causes an oddly tinted dusting on the fish's body. There are also fish lice, anchor worms, flukes, and nematodes. Various signs and symptoms include erratic swimming, loss of color, excessive mucous, trouble breathing, and bloating or wasting.
After parasites, one of the most common illnesses are bacterial infections, such as fin and tail rot. Symptoms of the bacterial disease are white film, cloudy eyes, ragged fins, and open sores. Bacterial infections are challenging to treat because antibiotics can interfere with the aquarium and filter.
Fungal infections are much less regular and usually take the form of cotton-like growths.
Viral infections occur in goldfish and koi but are less common in other aquarium fish.
If you see or suspect any of these issues in your fish, it's a good idea to talk with an professional about diagnosis and treatment. Pictures and videos can be helpful in conveying the symptoms you're seeing.

Karlie did an amazing job grooming my boy Bentley. He is a shih tsu mix and had not been groomed for several months. She followed my wishes to the letter. Thank you, Karlie.
Love this place
The staff is great and very helpful! They are always friendly and will tell you about the deals going on in the store! The daycare is cute, but my hours don't work with daycare I wish they did. My puppy loves coming here while I shop for her goodies. The person running the fish section knows everything you need to know about care!
Took my dog in for a nail trimming and they took such good care of him. He’s never liked his nails being done and they handled him very well. Will be back
I came here for some dog food and they have a fantastic selection here. They always have great deals and specials too. I’ve been very satisfied each time I come here. Very diverse and expansive aquatic selection too.
