I’m grateful to Dr. John Shawn Prescott, for allowing me to publish his series of articles about fish disease on Reef Ramblings. Based on articles written for a leading USA magazine, as well as some lectures, from when the author was an active member of the EAFP (European Assoc. of Fish Pathologists), they deal with most of the common parasitic, bacterial, and viral diseases, that occur in fresh and salt water aquaria.
This series makes a good starting point for the hobbyist wanting a better understanding of fish disease and how to treat it.
