Flukes in Fish: Causes, Symptoms, & Treatments

Flukes in fish are caused by parasitic flatworms that can attach themselves to the gills, skin, or other organs of fish, leading to a range of health issues. These parasites are typically introduced into an aquarium through new fish, plants, or water, particularly if they are not properly quarantined or inspected. Symptoms of a fluke infestation can vary but may include scratching against objects, skin redness, excessive mucus production, and respiratory distress.
