HIH occurrence in adult Uaru

Post by apistomaster » Wed Jun 20, 2007 12:23 pm

I have a friend in the Netherlands that contacted me on plantcatfish for information and advice to deal with HIH "disease. He knows that I raise Discus and discus have long been associated with this problem although I have not had an occurence among my Discus since the late '60''s and early '70's among wild caught Discus that were well past the point of no return. I have always considered it to be a syndrome related to poor envirionmental and/or dietary issues more than actually being a distinct disease.
Is there any current consensus on just what this Cichlid health problem is? What if anything has been useful in controlling it. It is also, to me, just a different manifestation of HLLE.
Thank you in advance for any pointers towards any source of information.
