Did you know 15% of all Americans own goldfish? No matter where you go you see beautiful hues of this fabulous fish. I have seen aquariums at the dentist and doctor’s office, hospitals, corporate offices, schools, restaurants and bars. It is hard not to develop a fondness for this fun loving little creature.
However, it is inevitable that they will get sick just like you, your child or family members get ill.
Minimise goldfish ailments & diseases with Aloe Juice
What is Aloe Juice?
- Aloe is a popular medicinal plant with many health benefits. It treats both internal and external diseases.
- Aloe juice contains vitamins A, B, C and E. Some people choose to supplement their diets with aloe juice or multivitamin complexes to maintain optimal health.
- Aloe juice is a completely natural source of vitamins. The aloe in the juice contains more than twenty different minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, lignin, saponins and salicylic tissue. It can cure ulcers, aid digestion and greatly improve the overall immune system. The foundation of good health is ensuring good diet and nutrition.
Some of the goldfish diseases and ailments treatable by aloe juice are:
- Ammonia Poisoning
- High water temperature
- MelaFix burns

Stress can be caused by water change, thermal shock, toxicity, lack of oxygen (hypoxia) or even behavioral stress.
Stress plays havoc in fish affecting their immune system.
To alleviate stress for your goldfish provide them with an aloe tonic and an aloe bath. An aloe bath will give your fish much needed stress relief.
Lack of appetite in your goldfish will result in decreased food intake. Decreased food consumption will surely attract diseases and ailments. Use of aloe juice will increase their appetite naturally.
Using one tablespoon of aloe juice per 10 gallons of water, mix your aloe in with fresh, treated water with each water change. Remember to add freshwater gradually.
Firstly, source a container that is contaminant free. Fill the container with your primary aquarium or pond water; premix one ounce per gallon of water. Next, you will need to bath your fish for about five minutes. Give them a bath twice daily until they start to get better. The aloe bath water can be refrigerated and used again.
Aloe juice can be administered orally to your goldfish by using a syringe or an eye dropper. For external use, 1/4 of a drop is placed on each inch of your goldfish body. To pass aloe juice health benefits to their internal organs, you should add one tablespoon of aloe juice to a gel fish food recipe.
