Are there diseases that only happen in salt tanks?

  • I don't know much about salt water tanks or their care, I am still researching about them before deciding if I want one or not.

    I am curious if there are any diseases that only happen in salt tanks. Like something that will not occur in freshwater.

  • Yes, there are quite a few diseases that do happen in just saltwater tanks. Some of them are more common than others and it is wise to know about the more common ones as well as the less common ones.

    Some of the more common ones that I can think of off the top of my head are

    Marine White Spot Disease
    Clownfish Disease
    Bacterial Infections
    Swim Bladder Disease

    I know there are more than this in terms of common diseases, but I hope these help a little.
