Living Waters Aquatic Management has over 20 years experience with identifying & treating fish disease. In necessary situations we are capable of isolating a fish that shows signs of infection, and netting the individual. Based upon the signs of infection, and an inspection of the fish, we are equipped to collect a scraping. Using the slimy residue of this scraping, we prepare a glass slide and visually confirm the presence of fish disease under microscope.
