Fungus infection is very common in fish. The symptoms are white growths on the body that are fluffy in appearance. These growths can also be found on the fin areas. The fungus attacks regions where the mucus or slime coating on the fish has worn off because of damage by parasites or injury. Fungus is generally the Saprolegenia and Achlya species. Treatment for this fungus infection includes gentian violet or methylene blue. The entire tank should also be treated with an aquarium fungicide.
