Doc’s Fish Health Library Available to Subscribers

By “subscribers” I just mean, owners of the new book “Saving Sick Fish” by Dr Erik Johnson available here.

I digitized part of my fish health library. I posted it online with the door locked so I’d be able to read the books from time to time waiting on my fiance to finish some shopping or whatever. The books compile nicely on a smart phone screen.
Each book offers something very useful from beginner to advanced.
Each book is searchable. And if you find something you wanna remember you can highlight and copy text.
But because there is no commercial reason or use for these besides my own edification, you aren’t set to download the files, nor share, nor print them. The work belongs to the copyright holder where applicable. Many of the works don’t have a copyright holder extant, concerned or even ‘still alive’.
Not much has changed however, since 1976- with the workings of a hermit crabs’ gills. No major renovations in 300 million years to be exact hahahaha.

“Saving Sick Fish” by Dr. Erik Johnson
Forty page crash course with NO 'unnecessary' topics or information. You can solve fish health problems quickly and develop adequate proficiency to succeed with fish keeping and the aquarium hobby in an illustrated 2 to 3 hour read.

The author provides guidance and “how to's” based on more than twenty years experience as a fish health veterinarian. Author of several other books on fish health, this is not a “pop-up” Chat GPT produced guess-book.

The book is supported by 21 QR Codes which take the reader to more information at the book's supporting website of the same name, savingsickfish.org where the reader will find a support forum, more than 60 conserved (reader only) resources which are substantially video tutorials.
This is exactly the book you would give to a new hobbyist who wanted to be “pretty good” at fish keeping right out of the gate. You will stop losing fish and start enjoying the hobby.

If I was training a new employee for a pet shop, fish-friendly veterinary clinic, a garden center or pond company, this would be the book I'd hand the prospect. If someone bought a fish or tank from me, I'd give  them this book so they could get up to speed without ANY wasted time. There are 21 Q-R Codes that take you from A to Z if you somehow want more depth than the book gives you. There are nerds like that. The happy kid on the cover is better than a dead fish with it's guts showing, which is NORMALLY what you see on a fish diseases book. I hope you like it. Doc Johnson

Another personal introduction to the book with Dr Johnson in person.
“Spotless Ich” is a Thing. But it’s EASY. (Video)
For some reason, Ich organisms don't cause white spots in Koi and most goldfish. I've NEVER seen white spot on Koi. At the same time, some of the hottest Ich infestations were on Koi. WITHOUT WHITE SPOTS.
If you see Koi or Goldfish turning red, getting slimy and depressed, it's usually a crashing pH but that's easy to prove.
Then if the pH is okay, you could break out your trusty microscope.
OR just start some salting.
Good article on salting over at savingsickfish.org
Precautions When Using Salt to Treat White Spot and Fish Diseases

The above video deals with some precautions about using salt. It's practically impossible to end up in trouble with it –  but there are times when I'd be “Ehhhhh not so much” on it.
Practically ALWAYS when treating White Spot disease (Ick) (Ich) but for most everything else, Formalin Malachite Green is usually better.

This video takes the book “Saving Sick Fish” a little deeper in looking at salt and some things to be careful of when treating for example, we don't like Salt in warm, cloudy water. And if there are a lot of live plants, the plant die-off could corrupt the system equilibrium. More.

You can ask these questions and more and Dr Johnson will answer FROM HIS PUBLISHED WORKS.
This means that A.I. scours everything he's written and puts it into an answer on his website.
It's artificial intelligence applied, BUT at least it comes from valid information and not a patch work of random Internet articles. Does it fail? AI sometimes doesn't understand the question – or maybe I just don't know the answer so it's not in the database. But give it a try.
And it's free.
