    Human infection


    As I was doing some research into disease I came across some interesting articles. I will make a blog entry eventually but for now I just wanted to post this info for us all to read and share any info we may have on the subject.

    My Gawd. That guy needs some help. I knew TB in fish caused human infections but didn't realize it went to this extent.

    I've moved your thread and stickied it. Nice job sharing it here. People need to see this.

    People will remove a fish from a tank but the entire stock will get the disease and the tank needs to be totally disinfected before new stock added. One of our former members had this happen to him.

    Definately. Anyone who gets an infected cut or sore on their hands and arms needs to really be careful around their fish tanks and clean their hands well.

    Chrona, a past member here, lost all his fish to TB, restocked and lost them all again. He had to break down his tank and scrub it with bleach to kill the TB. He also had to see a doctor about infection on his hands.

  5. Default It is also called - swimming pool granuloma

    So people need to know that just bleach wont neccessarily kill the bacteria. Alcahol @ 76 - 80 % and there is another disinfectant I will make sure to include it in the essay. but the point is you know that swimming pools have chlorine - Bleach basically and yet this is most commonly caught in humans from swimming at a public pool.

    He never did set his tank up with fish, only plants, so guess using bleach would not have worked then. You are full of really good information this morning!

    Good post !

    I thought it'd be good to add in this picture.

    I see a lot of people worrying about TB when their Danio gets a humped back. If your Danio has a back like the photo below and not photos in the first post it is likely old age.

    She was a nice fish, so hopefully she can help someone. R.I.P.

    did chrona ever re-do the tank? all i remember is him saying he was sick of TB and taking his tank down would be a pain, then he left

    I think all his fish dead and then he got more and lost those too. Could be wrong there. I do know he had an infection on his hand, tho.
