How To Avoid “Resistance” Among Fish Diseases

Just like some human diseases, fish diseases could develop some sort of “resistance” against medication, and this may happen if you regularly use the same fish medicines over and over; the parasite or disease simply builds up a “natural” resistance to the drug, and the medication loses its efficacy.

Change your fish medications every now and then or, better yet, do preventive measures such as disinfecting or replacing the water, but do not perform “preventive treatments” on fishes that are healthy.

There is no such thing as “preventive treatments” on fishes, just preventive measures on the water, filtration material, plants, etc.
