    Default can fish have allergies?

    well.. the title sounds like a joke but i really want to know the answer to this question, can fish get allergies and please explain. humans and dogs/cats etc... have allergies so i don't see why fish wouldn't but i have no proof to back it up.

    What kind of allergies are we talking? Food allergies? Possible I suppose but the immune system problem that would cause those likely would kill the fish first. Obviously I'm not a biologist or anything so I couldn't tell you any specifics but that would be my opionion.
    22g and 50g tanks
