The district court granted summary judgment to Thomco, finding that Squish La Fish did not rely on Thomco’s alleged misrepresentations within the meaning of Georgia’s economic loss rule exception for negligent misrepresentation. We reverse and remand.


Squished fish is the name given to any aquatic animal with lumps, nodules, or bumps that appear on its skin and fins due to an infection by Argulus amoeba; this parasitic infection often results in granulomatous lesions in various tissues of its host’s body, such as muscle tissue (as in this picture) as well as organs like the liver, digestive tract, gonads, and heart – including muscle. Other symptoms may include loss of condition with copious mucous secretions from its chambers and spot or pinpoint hemorrhages all over its body (especially fins); weak swimming; lethargy; hanging at the water surface for extended periods; decreased feeding by its host.

These symptoms are very similar to other parasitic fish diseases, making it essential to know how to differentiate between them to quickly recognize any signs your fish is experiencing and act immediately upon them. To do this successfully, you must identify body language and behavioral indicators such as swimming differently than expected or jumping more or less frequently than usual; not eating normally; remaining close to waterfalls or moving water; or simply showing lethargy when ill;

Additionally, when the granulomatous lesions develop near the fish’s skin surface, they will appear whitish; deep within tissues, they can become brownish in hue. At times, the fish will show signs of respiratory distress, such as bubbles in the air or breathing faster than usual.

Note that symptoms of squished fish may resemble other parasitic diseases or viral infections; if a large proportion of your pond’s fish suddenly displays multiple of these symptoms quickly (over an extended period), it could indicate water quality problems; ammonia, nitrite, and pH testing kits must be utilized as soon as possible to ensure accurate readings are being obtained from tests performed on your water supply.


Acute Gill Disease (AGD) is a systemic granulomatous infection caused by Acanthamoeba multimucosa amoebae, though other species of Amoebae may also be responsible [72,73]. AGD causes progressive degeneration of gills and lesions to organs responsible for respiratory, osmoregulatory, and circulatory systems. Affected fish become lethargic, lose weight quickly, and grow much slower [74,75,76,77,76,77,76,77].

Amoebae are notorious for invading fish gills by penetrating through mucous membranes into blood vessels and lymphatic tissues, where they multiply before being expelled through their gills back into the water, potentially infecting other fish and possibly persisting within the digestive tracts and gonads of affected individuals. This condition is common among farmed trout and breeding programs – its impact is severely devastating.

Infected fish develop muscular lesions and reduced swimming speed and feeding rates, eventually dying of hypoxia due to diminished oxygen extraction by their gills. Most commonly affected are rainbow trout, although other farmed and wild species like halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) and Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) are reported as well.

Fisheries that experience severe attacks of AGD typically experience high mortality rates. Affected fish usually exhibit ulcerative skin disease and granulomas in their skeletal muscles; their gills may become yellow with multiple filaments protruding from the epithelium, creating yellow-brown colorations. AGD can be avoided through proper husbandry practices such as feeding adequately, water quality controls, and hygiene measures.

Chronic forms of the disease, with slower progression and less severe lesions, are sometimes observed. They have been linked with poor nutrition, excessive feed consumption, and overcrowded aquaculture facilities – though these cases tend to occur less frequently than acute forms.

An initial water quality issue often causes squished fish. Ammonia levels that spike can irritate gills and strain immune systems severely, leaving fish more prone to parasites or bacteria than before and making defense much more complicated for these creatures to fight off. Unfortunately, it often takes weeks or even months before symptoms emerge due to this initial problem in their environment.


As is true for all sick animals, gathering a thorough history is critical to accurate diagnosis. This should include gathering vital details about how long the fish has been in its aquarium or pond, what types of foods they usually eat, whether any new fish were recently introduced, and any potential stressors contributing to its condition.

Squished fish may exhibit symptoms consistent with mycobacteriosis (Flexibacter columnaris) or opportunistic pathogens like Ich when infected by these bacteria, pitting holes form on their skin and gill epithelial tissues, progressing to cotton-like masses that spread across their bodies, eventually leading to shock with hemorrhagic septicemia and eventual mortality.

Tropical fish species can suffer from parasitic worms, fungal infections, and viral diseases that often present with similar clinical presentations and diagnostic criteria. One virus known to cause this condition in various freshwater and brackish water fish species is Lymphocystis Kanae, which leads to mass cell accumulations within connective tissues visible when observed under the microscope – something which lymphocystis Kanae sufferers commonly see when seen under the microscope.

Many of the most severe diseases afflicting fish can be quickly and inexpensively diagnosed using laboratory tests such as ammonia, nitrite, and pH test kits available today. These kits can quickly assist clinicians in quickly pinpointing possible sources of disease within a fish patient population.

Other tests used to help make a diagnosis include bacterial culture and acid-fast staining of suspect lesions, as well as fecal culture for detection of gastroesophageal tract infections, as well as kidney gram-negative cultures for diagnosing mycobacteriosis and fungal infections of the intestine and genital organs. For these infections, broad-spectrum antibiotic treatments such as Enrofloxacin(r), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole(r), or amikacin may be prescribed; please follow label instructions when administering these medicines to maximize success.

Squished fish can be the first telltale sign of constipation caused by improper diet (including some manufactured fish food products) or overfeeding. Hobbyists usually notice the telltale bloating and swelling accompanying constipation, followed by irregular swimming behavior due to blockages affecting the swim bladder. Left untreated, this condition will kill a fish within days unless action is taken quickly to treat it.

Treatment options for squished fish may include feeding softened, peeled, and quartered peas with presoaked freeze-dried or fresh Daphnia to simplify digestion or giving these foods directly by mouth. With their high magnesium levels, Epsom salts may also help alleviate bloat; these are especially recommended for Goldfish.

If these treatments don’t help, your fish could suffer from Columnaris disease. Signs include white lesions resembling grainy salt on its body and frayed fins; loss of appetite; frayed fins and fraying tail fins as well as white lesions all over their bodies that appear similar to the grain of salt, frayed tail fins, and frayed fins that fray, and loss of appetite. This parasite weakens Betta’s immune system, compromising against secondary infections or diseases that could arise later.

Quarantining new fish and providing them with natural foods that contain anti-parasite properties can be easily accomplished using homemade food made of seaweed, calcium montmorillonite clay, and crushed garlic – garlic being particularly heat resistant will ensure its essential properties will not be destroyed during production processes like manufactured foods do – thus helping prevent overfeeding which may otherwise cause constipation for some species of fish.
