Method & Materials: Flower horn fish, an exotic species, rearing in private aquarium, had prolaps of anus, no appetite for 1 month and was pale in
color, transferred in proper aerated water to veterinary faculty of Tehran University. we collected some samples from skin, gills and anus , for Gimsa staining , wet mounted slide and culture in blood agar medium identifying presumptive causative pathogen.
Results & Conclusion: After these procedures we observed acute contamination of Hexamita spp. in this case. The recommended treatment was metronidazole, multivitamin 100mg⁄lit for 5 consecutive days in a bath treatment and water exchange. It is supposed this contamination was entered to the country by baggage-trade which made by passengers who trips to South East Asian countries and can pass through costume without any limitation and legislation. It seems that the alien fish need to be quarantined for proper period before entrance to country by responsible organizations.
