Fundamentals of Ornamental Fish Health is a complete guide to managing the health and well-being of ornamental aquatic animals. Grounded in the foundations of fish medical care, the book summarizes nonlethal aquatic diagnostics and medicine, putting the information within a clinical context. Providing a comprehensive overview of the subject, Fundamentals of Ornamental Fish Health equips aquatic animal health professionals with all the information needed to competently and effectively treat these patients, from transporting and examining fish to diagnostic techniques and the identification and treatment of specific diseases and syndromes.Since fish do not have an additional metabolic cost associated with feeding on protein, they can direct more of the energy in food toward ... the only pet fish for which there is a systematic scientific information of nutritional requirements is the colorful variant of the common carp, the koi. So, while much of this chapter is generally applicable to all pet fish, specific recommendations can only be given for koi.
