Regarding finding the cause of a fish illness .. .

How do you know?

Not you can't really do a blood test and cultures.

I have a otto succumbing to popeye. (I am about to pull him from the tank).

I did salt, water changes (water was fine) and doxycycline. I could not get Marasyn Plus (recommended) in time.

Alot of threads says you need to know the cause of the illness.

I am guessing folks just look at the fish and look for symptoms or signs, but there are no "tests"

Thanks
