Brooklynella Hostilis Is A Highly Contagious Disease That Can Kill Your Fish In A Matter Of Days
Brooklynella hostilis is a disease that affects marine fish by attacking their gills. These parasites live on the skin of fish. This can lead to severe respiratory problems once the gill is infested. Fish can contract this parasite from a variety of sources. The following factors may cause your fish to develop the disease. The most noticeable difference that sets Brooklynella apart from Oodinium is the liqueur produced. The protozoa that cause this disease reproduce asexually through simple binary fission through conjugation. This rapid reproduction explains why Brooklynella can kill fish in a few days. Diagnosis and immediate treatment of all fish exposed to Brooklynella are critical. Formalin is a 37 percent solution of formaldehyde gas dissolved in water. It has been found to be an effective treatment for Brooklynella. Formin is a very powerful chemical. It should be used very carefully. Make sure you know how to treat ich poisoned fish. Brooklynella is highly contagious. Fish living in the same aquarium should be removed and screened by an aquatic veterinary expert. If symptoms are caught early and treatment begins immediately, formalin solution can be very effective at removing the parasites. Brooklynlla was originally known as clownfish disease. Wild-caught clownfish often suffer from this disease. It's rarely seen on captive-bred clownfish. Quarantine new aquarium fish for two to four weeks before they are introduced. A freshwater dip is also helpful in quarantining new fish. . . .
