Fish Symptom Diagnosis Chart
This chart is found in the Guide to Fish Health accompanying Interpet Liquisil treatments. I provide a copy here only because I am unable to find this information on the internet. Copyright for this chart belongs to Interpet.

Once you have a diagnosis, you can treat your fish accordingly. Consult your aquatic supplies shop for the right treatment, or choose from the range of Interpet Liquisil treatments, listed here.
