Fish are sensitive and can often contract internal and external infections, diseases and parasites. These need to be dealt with swiftly to prevent losses and further infection of other inhabitants.
We have experience in assessing and treating many species of fish – large and small; temperate and tropical; freshwater and marine, we offer to lend an expert eye to cast over your fish related worries. Your fish and setup will initially be visually assessed – some parasites are easily determined by eye or by behavioural cues. Sometimes there can be an inherent issue with the set up itself that has a contributing factor. This is followed by the relevant water chemistry analysis and then if deemed necessary, skin scrapes can be taken to more accurately determine potential parasites under a microscope.
After the assessment we can then carry out or suggest any necessary treatments and/or explain how you yourself can respond to any identified issues.
A report on the entire set up is supplied with this service.
