Fish TB is actually a pretty serious disease, one we probably should poke fun at.

Its fish tuberculosis. Its not gonna give a human TB, but is deadly and could in some cases give you a rash if you have open cuts.

Apparently (not that I knew til now lol!) the forum's had an outbreak of newer members thinking their fish have fish TB, when they most assuredly do not. TB is pretty rare, and the fish have probably died to another illness or neglect.

I'm sick and highly entertained by all of ya.

Rant - My husband has GOT to start sanitizing his hands when he gets off PATH and NJ Transit trains. If he gets me sick one more time, I'm gonna find the sickest kid in the supermarket, tail him, touch everything he touches, then I'm gonna come home and nap on Steve's side of the bed, use his toothbrush, and kiss the daylights out of him!!!!

He'll think he's gettin' lovings and I shall have sweeeeet revenge! Mwahahahahahaha!

Same here. It's now a meme that a very small community of people understand, and that's really all I care about.

As for fish TB, it's a serious but very rare disease in fish, but it's even rarer to contract as a human. As far as I've read, you pretty much have to have an open wound on skin that touches infected water, and/or you would have to have some immune problem, like being very young, very old, or have a disease already like HIV/AIDS. Don't quote me on it, but that's what I've seen.

BETTA DET, I freaking love your avi by the way. Just thought you should know.
