These really opened my eyes...

I recently read a couple of incredibly useful and well-written articles by experienced fishkeeper Carl Strohmeyer.

One goes into a lot of detail about Columnaris (AKA flex, 'fungus', fin rot) - an absolute must-read!


There's a lot of info that to me was actually a bit shocking - like that Columnaris really likes clean tank water, rather than preferring dirty anaerobic environments.

The above article also describes Saprolegnia (AKA 'the fuzzies') which is commonly mistaken for Columnaris and actually might appear as a symptom of it..

The next article was about preventative care - ways to stop your fish getting sick in the first place. Again, a lot of extremely useful stuff.


Now, Carl just loves to link his own products for sale in his articles. But that doesn't mean his information isn't accurate. There's a real wealth of knowledge and experience on his site. The directory of his many articles can be found here:

I really like what Mr Strohmeyer has to say. I consider definitive his article on cycling. I just wish he were a better writer.

Thanks for the tip, Aus. I haven't been all over his site, yet.
