In the gouramis with superficial wound more severe lesions developed such as ulcerative dermatitis in 38 cases and septicaemia in 8 cases. Culture from the basis of the ulcers revealed the presence of Aeromonas hydrophila besides ubiquiter bacterial flora. In case of 6 dwarf gouramis Tetrahymena piriformis infection was observed, while in 11 other cases white-spot disease caused by Ichthyophthirius multifiliis was diagnosed during the supplementary examinations.
