But I've never seen columnaris hit that fast... Without at least one sign beforehand - and I've seen nasty cases of columnaris!
But then it would bring the question of... HOW did it happen? I take pride in making sure everyone is healthy, and there has not been any diseases entering that isolated fish room... Room itself is at 31 Celsius.
If it is what you suggested Tiki, it says it rarely attacks a healthy host, and most meds and cooler temperatures don't work. Is it contagious? And what could I do, even just to boost the immune systems of the others?
I should note everyone was check on at 930 this morning, and I was in there for the bucket and hose at 1, then back in there to check the crowntail pair at 4, and now it's 10. That's about 6 hours since he looked fine.
