Why might I buy freshwater aquarium additives?

While the vast majority of fish diseases are triggered by stress, usually as a result of poor water conditions, there are times when your fish may become ill regardless of how much attention you have paid to their health and it's best to tackle this problem as soon as you notice any symptoms. These treatments should help them get swimming again.

Aquarium fish disease treatments are usually targeted at specific types of diseases, such as whitespot or fungus, so your first step is to accurately diagnose what disease your fish are suffering from. Once you’ve identified whether your fish are suffering from a parasitic infection, a crustacean infection, a bacterial infection, or a fungal infection, you can then select a treatment to tackle the problem.

It is important to know the volume of water in your aquarium so the correct amount of aquarium treatment can be added.

What accessories should I buy with freshwater aquarium additives?

Aquarium treatments and additives are needed for all types of aquariums, to maintain a healthy balance.
