Answer: Homoeopathy works with any living thing, so fish can also be successfully treated by it. Remedies can even be used preventatively for certain fish diseases.
Rather than trying to drop a pill down the mouth of a wriggling fish, though, there is an easier way – just medicate the water in which it swims.
For small tanks, drop one pill per litre into the water and then sit back to watch how your fish responds over the next 24 hours.
For larger tanks or outside ponds, dissolve the appropriate number of pills in a litre of water and then mix it through the aquarium.
If the problem is only with one fish, separate it into a smaller tank and treat it away from the rest. If most or all of the fish are affected, treat them as a group.
The only thing to remember is that your fish should not swim forever in the medicated water as they, just like us, can experience an aggravation.
To avoid this, make sure the water is exposed to sunlight as it weakens and eventually destroys the effects of homeopathic remedies.
While it’s easy to ensure exposure to the sun with outside pools, inside tanks should be placed under UV lights or have a UV sterilizer added to the filtration system. Either way, the water will be remedy-free within three days.
Knowing this, all you have to do is identify the symptoms of your fish should it become sick and then find the matching remedy. If you are new to homeopathy, you will probably need the help of a homeopath experienced in this area.
