  Aquarium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An aquarium (plural aquariums or aquaria) is a clear-sided container (typically constructed of glass or high-strength plastic) in which water-dwelling plants and animals (usually fish, and sometimes invertebrates, as well as amphibians, marine mammals, and reptiles) are kept in captivity, often for public display; or it is an establishment featuring such displays.
Aquarium heaters are designed to act as thermostats to regulate water temperature at a level designated by the aquarist when the prevailing temperature of air surrounding the aquarium is below the desired water temperature.
An aquarium may have fresh water (a salt level of < 0.5%), simulating a lake or river environment; salt water (a salt level of 5%–18%), simulating an ocean or sea environment; or brackish water (a salt level of 0.5%–5%), simulating environments lying between fresh and salt, such as estuaries.

An aquarium is a clear-sided container (typically constructed of glass or high-strength plastic) in which water-dwelling plants and animals (usually fish) are kept in captivity.)

Please note also that some diseases have multiple manifestations (Columnaris, NTD, Fish TB, to name a few), and may vary in presentation from fish to fish; others are not true "diseases" caused by a single organism, but rather signs that could point to a number of causative organisms (dropsy, pop-eye).
It is still unknown if this is the same exact disease entity or what the cause is, but most attribute it to congenital or developmental causes, sometimes birth defects, premature birth or inadequate nutrition at certain stages.

Most disease organisms that can affect pet fish are already present in all but the newest aquariums.
Fish that are kept in water that is significantly too warm or too cold, or even fish that are kept slightly too warm or cold for long periods of time are going to be stressed and this will repress their immune systems.
Once a fish becomes sick, the population of disease organisms in the tank increases, and the health of the pathogens also increases.

An aquarium can range from a small, unadorned glass bowl containing less than a liter of water - although generally unsuited for any fish - to massive tanks built in public aquaria which are limited only by engineering constraints and can house entire ecosystems as large as kelp forests or species of large sharks.
These tanks are often used for killifish, livebearers, cichlids etc. They can be simple as bare bottom with a few neccessities or a complex planted aquarium.

The latter benefit is especially important should disease strike your tank; water changes are the most important step in controlling disease, and large water changes are not safe unless the chemical composition (e.g., pH and GH) of your tank's water is similar to your tap water.
Diseases introduced to your tank with newly purchase fish may infect your other fish with catastrophic results.
Thus, the appearance of disease in a tank is frequently brought on by ``poor water conditions'' that leave fish with weakened immune systems.

Most diseases occurring in fishes are the result of severe stress and a diminished immune system caused by environmental factors.
This may entail massive water changes if the problem is water quality related, but you cannot cure the disease without curing the causing agent as well.
The best preventative for introduction of disease is a quarantine of 30 days in a separate quarantine tank, but not all of us have the opportunities to do it (but think about the benefits, especially when introducing marines).
