Caused by the parasite Myxobolus and Henneguya. It usually attacks Marble Gobies and Common Carps. Both parasites are found on the gills. For Myxobolus, it is also found on the skin. This form of the parasite are cyst in shape (spore-containing spores) and will burst when it matures. Spore are released into the water and infection will occur.

Signs Of Disease

- Fish becomes pale (serious). White and round cyst along with the parasite (nominally 2-4 mm) can be seen in the gills. The gill are sometimes clustered.

- Fish skin began to swell (parasite Myxobolus)

- In normal circumstances, death will occur slowly.

So far, there is no treatment for the disease. It is recommended to control and prevent disease from happening.
