Common Fish ailments

Thought it would be a good idea to have a thread of info and links for many of the diseases and problems that can affect tropical fish including plecos.

Starting with

Columnaris+Fungus info and treatments

A good article about Flexibacter Columnaris which also include pictures and treatment. Also included in the article is info and treatment of Saprolegnia, a common 'fungus' infection, called fungus although not true fungus

Just wondering if some people can add some information about the types of worms and what worming treatments are best. Am finding it very hard to find information and or pics in relation to symptoms and appropriate treatments whether be for existing issues or as precaution.
Have read the medicines available in Australia thread but still doesnt answer above Question.
