That is exactly how my Fish Vet friend described glugea. He said to first
look for the tumor/xenoma. HE also said if you look at the fish from the
top you will see either muscle lacerations or some swelling on one side, and
the other side will be quite sunken, or necrotic tissue (dead tissue). He
said if you can take a slight, paper thing filet from the sunken area and
smash/squash it between a cover slip and a slide (microscope preparation),
and you will see many spores of the glugea description.
He also mentioned a good book to get, which, as soon as I get
rich...lol....(never)....I will buy. It is called Fish Disease Diagnosis
and Treatment, by Ed Noga. He said some of it is a little scientific
speech, but it has a lot of good info and starts with the symptoms to help
you narrow it down for a good diagnosis.
