I had to ask this question hope I do not offend anyone. I would like to have a few clarification regarding fish diseases from a properly learned person.

I've been on this forum for around 8 months - I haven't seen any posts from qualified vets - we all seem to muddle through

Its considerably easier to diagnose your own fish now compared to when I started fishkeeping cos back then the internet did not exist so when a fish got sick, it was a case of head off to the local library and read loads of books and perform a delicate act of elimination to find out what was wrong

There are not many High Street type vets who specialise in fish health....mainly cos its not easy to take a fish to a vet practice. To get a qualified diagnoses you would need to contact your nearest university or public aquarium who would have access to specialist fish vets either on staff or be able to call on one should the need arise.

Novice & experienced fishkeepers have a much wider and better volume of shared knowledge of fish health, treatments and care....you just have to go find it and ask the right questions and most importantly give all relevent information such as water quality, aquarium size, tankmates etc

People are largely unaware of the scientific study of diseases including discoveries made 20 years ago.

Most of these studies are in the field of aquaculture for food, but there have been some studies of aquarium fish which are less economically important .
