    Can fish have a stroke?

    I had a white fin Rosy Tetra that appeared to have a stroke. I found it stuck to my intake basket and it was only able to move it's head and gills like it was paralyzed from the gill's down.

    Fish have a brain so I see no reason why they couldn't have a stroke.

    im sure fish, being a living thing with blood and a brain and a CNS, would be susceptible to strokes.

    however, it would be highly unlikely that you would be able to tell.
    Just get it OVERWITH already! What else do I have to do?

    Keep in mind.. 9 out of every 10 things I type out, I don't bother hitting send, because I have to make sure I don't insult YOU.

    I would think it is possible, but do not think that is what is wrong with your fish. It just got sick and too weak to fight the "sucking-current".

    yeah, your fish may have died from something else.

    They can, and depending on the severity and where in the brain they occur, they can survive them, at least for a time.
