Please pardon the nervous babble in the middle... but enjoy all the same!
This video explains a safe and gentle method of examining a fish's gills, as is recommended when your fish gets sick.
- Please remember to wash your hands with a safe cleanser like vinegar or Castille soap before handling your fish or fish equipment!
- Do not pry the mouth open, but let the fish do so on its own.
- Always Quarantine sick fish!
- Do not hold the fish out of the water when checking. Allow them to stay wet and breathe.
