Most living organisms can suffer illness at one time or another. The most effective way to deal with this reality is to prevent, rather than wait for a possible problem. The consequences of having to treat a stocked aquarium with a medication can be stressful and damaging in itself. Many plants, fish and helpful bacteria can suffer as a result of using medication.
You need to get to know your fish well if you are going to be able to spot disease or illness before it becomes untreatable, so spend time observing your fish, how they move and interact with their environment.
