If you have had a certain fish for over a year, with no additions or possible intermediate hosts in the last six months, chances are you do not have one of these worms infestations listed. So always look for identifiable evidence Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch actual worms, and lacking these, utilize all circumstantial evidence to confirm otherwise, including the chances of introduction.

The bottom line without introduction in the last few months; what many might think is an internal parasite problem is very likely not and is a much more common Aeromonas bacterial infection which is all around from the soil to your substrate and does not need introduction into the aquarium or also quite possible, with the plethora of well marketed fish foods with poor energy levels and poor Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch contents, a nutritional issue.

Information is included about non parasite Detritus Worms commonly seen when an aquarium is cleaned or in aquariums with high bio loads and is an area with much confusion especially on the internet and often mis-identified as PLANARIA Freshwater.

More about Detritus Worms further into the article. Platyhelminthes consists of the unsegmented flatworms, which include both free-living and parasitic species. These worms have bilateral symmetry, and can move by using layers of muscle or by gliding along Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch slime trail using cilia. Flatworms lack a circulatory system and complete digestive system, instead flatworms absorb nutrients through their skin and excrete wastes using specialized "flame cells".

A few flatworms have primitive light-sensing "eyes" that allow them to move either towards or away from light, while other species have different types of sensors on their bodies, including chemical, balance, and water movement receptors. Most species of flatworms reproduce Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch sexually and asexually.

Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch trematodes belong to the Animal Kingdom Phylum Platyhelminthes, and are commonly referred to as flukes. Trematodes usually have flattened bodies, a primitive digestive system, suckers for attachment to their hosts, and are hermaphrodites an organism that possesses both male and female sex organs.

The Monogenea are the class ectoparasites that infect fish. Planaria are both marine and freshwater and can be parasitic, but this is generally rare and the few that are, generally are parasitic toward corals, eggs or other stationary "victims". See the section on Detritus Worms for more about Planaria since these are all too often confused with Detritus worms even though a completely different Phylum of worms.

The eggs must get into water in order to hatch and be able to infect their first host, a freshwater snail. The fluke develops in the snail and then burrows out to seek the Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch host which is a freshwater fish. Many species of snail and fish may carry these internal flukes.

Gill flukes can infect freshwater and saltwater fish and are found on fish from the wild as well as farmed fish. These parasites attach to the gills of the fish and feed on mucus, epithelial cells cells that line the inside of gills and perform the tasks of secretion, absorption, protection, and transcellular transportand blood from the host. The pictures above display first a standard microscopic slide of an isolated gill fluke and then to the right a Scanning Electron Microscope view of a gill fluke attached to gill filaments.

Other than scraping the gills which can be fatal to the fish and then preparing a slide, your best recourse is an "educated guess" based on redness in the gills which can be other issues too such as ammonia poisoning burns Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch, and scraping flashing of the fish against objects in the aquarium or pond in the area of the gills. In fact in the absence of this "flashing", odds are the redness is bacterial often Columnaris or inflammation from ammonia poisoning past or more likely present.

More Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch Gill Flukes; Much of the mucus being produced by the fish is in response to the physical Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch caused by the parasites. Damage is Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch and inflammatory, with secondary bacterial infections such as septicemia. Small or weak fish may die from the stress of acute infestations. Gill flukes reproduce via eggs that drop away to hatch in Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch 2 to 4 days depending upon temperature.

The hatchling Dactylogyrus is ciliated similar to a paramecium. Once a host is found the water-borne Dactylogyrus larvae has eye spots that enable Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch to swim away from light and burrow into the fishes' gill cover as the fish respires.

Once attached, it may take a week to mature and start producing eggs. The adult Gill Fluke is assumed to only live days. Improving filtration and over crowding is as important as treatment. With larger ponds, Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch isolating the fish in a tub or small "play pool" is all that is necessary for treatment, assuming crowding and filtration is not a problem or improved.

They are similar in treatment to flukes and anchor worms. These can be physically removed with tweezers, and then the wound treated with Mebromin, hydrogen peroxide or even Neosporin followed by a 30 minute Methylene Blue Bath. While Convolutriloba retrogemma are often blamed for coral attacks, in reality this is rare. The coral is thus deprived of symbiotic nutrient nourishment, as well as planktonic food, and slowly starves to death.

The use of "Reef Dip" or a freshwater dip of corals or similar is the best prevention for these flatworms. Prior to re-introduction to the treated aquarium, all corals should be dipped in pH stabilized freshwater for 25 to 45 seconds. This can also be used for nematodes, camalanus worms, or internal protozoans; although sometimes multiple dosages may be required.

PraziPro This can be used as either a bath as well as mixed with Methylene Blue or 'in-tank. Nematodes, also known as Roundworms, are a very common phyla of animals of which there are many parasitic forms. Nematodes are one of the simplest animal groups to have a complete digestive system, with a separate orifice for food intake and waste excretion unlike the Trematodes mentioned above.

Reproduction is usually sexual and males are usually smaller than females. Parasitic Nematodes can have quite complicated life cycles, moving between several different hosts or even locations in the host's body.

If the Nematode has a direct life cycle, then it does not need an intermediate host and infection can spread directly from one fish to another by means of a fish ingesting of eggs or larvae.

If the Nematode has an indirect life cycle the nematode eggs or larvae enter an invertebrate intermediate host such as copepod, tubiflex worm, or insect larva or a fish intermediate host these fish are then consumed by larger carnivorous fish prior to being eaten by or entering the final host fish.

Indications Diagnosis of Nematode Infestation: A method of diagnosing a nematode problem is generally just a guess. This is particularly plausible when a fish is eating regularly yet continues to lose weight, metabolizing body musculature to stay alive. This is usually seen as thinning along the back on either side of the dorsal fin. This often results in a well-fed fish starving to death.

White feces can also be an identification tool, however this can be misleading as to a true Nematode worm infestation, as long thin white feces Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch with bloating are just as often an indicator of a bacterial infection; generally Aeromonas or possibly a digestive issue.

This can Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch be Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch indicator of a combination bacterial again Aeromonas and protozoan Flagellate infection, usually Hexamita. Loss of appetite along with the other mentioned symptoms such as thick white feces, along with some bloating on one side or both of the fish can also be an indicator of a Nematode infection, especially a Eustrongylid nematode infestation.

Much More Information: Gram negative, Aeromonas Infections in Fish Generally a more positive identification of internal Nematodes is a thread like worm protruding from the anus.

Nematodes are smooth, cylindrical, relatively long worms, which distinguishes them from the flatter, segmented tapeworms and from the wider and shorter Monogenea Flukes. Here is a list of some other general symptoms of nematode infections besides the above already mentioned symptoms : Body Hemorrhaging Lumps or nodules on outer body epidermis Bloated or the opposite, wasting of the abdomen the fish may continue to eat or show otherwise normal behavior.

These are probably the most common nematode due to the relatively non-complex life cycle and ease of transmission, as Capillaria spread from one fish to another by ingestion of infective larvae that live in the intestines of cichlids such as angelfish, discus, gouramis, tetras, cyprinids and some other fish as well. This is often referred to as "Gourami Disease" due to the frequency of infection in Gouramis Symptoms common to this particular nematode include a bulge in the lower abdomen near the vent, or Capillari worms protruding from the anus.

Eustrongylid nematodes. These are found in muscle within the body cavity or encapsulated on the liver and other organs. These nematodes can affect a number of different species such as guppies, gar, danios, angelfish and other cichlids. Affected fish typically have bloated abdomens similar to dropsy of bacterial originas these nematodes often migrate into the body cavity and can be quite large.

Reference: Dropsy in Fish. Camallanus Nematodes. These infect the gastrointestinal tract of live-bearers, cichlids and other species of freshwater fish. Symptoms but not necessarily proof of infection : Usually, the first CLEAR indication of infection is a red worm extending from the anus of a fish sometimes mistaken for feces.

Scoliosis; Lateral curvature of the spine The lower part of the fish' body is hollow and wasted Parasite infested fish show very slow or no growth, as parasite is taking the food. Fish is fading away, looks as if it is starving to death. If the intermediate host crustacean is eaten by a fish, then the third-stage larvae Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch active and will start feeding again. After two more molts, it will become a sexually mature male or female adult worms. These are the distinctive red worms aquarists see protruding from the vents of infected aquarium fish.

One exception is the Camallanus cotti which has the ability to skip this stage, if a suitable crustacean host is not available. However there still needs to be a pathway to infection, which still often can rule out reinfection. Consumption of an infected fish by a tank mate or ingestion of feces produced by infected fish are possible modes of continuing the life cycle and thus reinfection.

Removal of dead fish and other methods of consumption along with isolation and Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch clean up of any and all feces should break this life cycle from my experience. The use of Metronidazole has the added benefit in that it is effective for anaerobic internal infections, common to the gut.

Generally only one treatment is needed if fed, two to three times in one dayalthough re-treatment days days later of a product containing Praziquantel is required. Fish food should be soaked Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch 15 minutes. Even in doses needed to treat internal worms, "Neutropenia" may result which then results in the fish being more susceptible to bacterial infections.

Levamisol is best used as part of a blend, such as in AAP Discomed where overdosing is nearly impossible since it is part of synergistic blend, otherwise use it as a treatment as a last resort due to the problems it can cause with the fish immune system, especially if over dosed accidentally.

See this article for use and cautions: Aquatic Medications 3; chemical and parasite treatments Treat with Levimisol once followed by a water change and treatment in days. Treat a third time after weeks following the second treatment. Be careful, as Levamisol can kill many worms quickly, which with most internal nemtode infections is not an issue since Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch are not generally widespread.

It is also more effective than Praziquantel. The reason Piperazine is safer is that it works via anthelmintic action used to expel or destroy parasitic worms in the Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch tract.

The mode of action is generally by paralysing parasites, which allows the host body to easily remove or expel the invading organism. For this reason, Piperazine is gentler on the fish and aquatic environment. Fenbendazole can be mixed with fish foods, but often flavor enhancers such as AAP Garlic Guard are needed to hide this medication so that fish will accept the food "spiked" with Fenbendazole.

A good follow up treatment as well as preventative which also Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch fish immune resistance via improved Redox Balance lowering oxidative stress would be an AAP Medicated Wonder Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch.

The AAP Medicated Wonder Shell is also a good part of a everything but the kitchen sink type treatment when it is not clear whether the problem is Die Parasiten nematody im Fisch or an internal gut infections If a medicated fish food soak is being used, the Medicated Wonder Shell would also be useful as an in-tank treatment to fight infection and improve fish immunity.

Since more funding is available for human studies, this often makes these studies more valuable and accurate. Currently, the predominant clinical uses of berberine include bacterial diarrhea, intestinal parasite infections, and ocular trachoma infections. Current suggested use is mg of power per 10 gallons of water and used as a additional treatment in aquariums and fish baths, not the sole treatment.

It is noteworthy that many if not most fish farms are located OUTDOORS, so the spread of nematodes via intermediate and finals hosts is easier than one may think. Knowing your source for your pet fish is very helpful as often many internal nematodes will not show symptoms in fish for over 30 days after arrival in your aquarium. More so with Eustrongylid nematodes since they are found in difficult to deliver mediation internal body locations.

Most annelids are NOT purely aquatic in fresh water; the annelids found in freshwater are all oligochaetes which means "few-bristled" and are not very important in the freshwater ecology as are their marine cousins, the polychaetes which means "multi-bristled". All the oligochaete worms are hermaphrodites an organism that posses both male and female genitalia and many are nearly microscopic.
