عنوان مقاله [English]
Bacterial septicemia is a bacterial fish disease that occurs as primary or secondary infection.Also the contamination to ciliate parasites such as Hexamita and to worms such as capillariaisis an important finding in aquarium fishes, which can weaken the fish and make them susceptibleto bacterial septicemia.The purpose of this study was diagnosis and identification of causes of death in an angelfish stock.A total of 10 fish samples (male and female, mean weight of 5±1 g) were transported live to the laboratory. For disease diagnosis, the routine investigation methods were done and for identification of isolated bacteria we used biochemical and molecular tests. At necropsy findings observed with the naked eye, had ascites and visceral congestion.In bacterial cultures of infected fish kidney, Aeromonas hydrophilainfection was detected and the bacterium was definitely identified by biochemical and PCR methods.In examination of intestine, severe infection to flagellate protozoa Hexamita sp. and Capillaria sp. infection in the intestinal lumen were also observed in all samples.According to this study, it was determined that bacterial septicemia by Aeromonas hydrophilawith heavy infestation with Capilaria and Hexamitacan be introduce as causes of the death of the angelfish.
