    As for me, being a respiratory therapist, why would one sacrifice their own health or anyone else for a disease that basically will put legions into the apicies of your lungs, then have me give you breathing treatments and eventually put you onto a ventilator to breath aka life support. Treating TB is costly, and a long progress (around 2+ years) that is if whatever (you/fish or whoever) has it does not get a drug resistance from the antibiotics, then your screwed.

    I am quite sure the inhabitants in this aquarium are not the last of the species in the world and are readily available. So please take the advice of the knowledgeable people here and do the tank a favor!


    As Ronald Reagan would tell you: "Tear down this aquarium"

  2. Question Danio...possible TB


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi there, Im probably in the wrong place but as your talking about treatments, you may be able to spot TB. I m concerned about my zebra Danio...and the other fish i have left. I hd an outbreak of what i was told was NTD and I lost 3 neons and 3 glowlights. Having been doing more and more research it think they may have had fishTB. One of my zebra danios is sick and Im worried bout the outbreak of TB. If it is and I have to treat it, i don't want to kill my two ghost shrimp.
    In my tank currently i have 3 ottos, 2 ghost shrimp, 5 zebra Danios, 1 glowlight and 2 neons. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. The danio who i suspect has TB has TB curvature in the spine just behind the head curving upwards. her stomach is becoming really bloated and she is saying still in a corner of the tank now. little while ago she looked like she had a cut on her side just behind her gills.
    Many thanks!

    Lucy you should probably make your own thread instead of resurrecting this old one.

    Generally speaking though There isn't a cure for Fish TB, and since its transferable to people, you sincerely need to evaluate if your less than $2 fish is worth putting your health in jeopardy to manage the disease.
