JBL Fungol Plus medication for aquarium fish to treat external mycoses (fungal infections) caused by fungi of the Saprolegniaceae family. Whitish, cotton ball-like films which may appear on all of the external body parts are a sign of this kind of infection. Visible fungal infestation is very often a secondary infection, which may, for example, result from a skin injury. Just as often, though, a bacterial infection which destroys the mucous membrane and the upper skin layers of the fish is found to be the primary cause.
