Newspaper, kleenex, anything that you usually throw in the trash.

It shouldn't, not if you wrap him well. I have a feeling he died of ammonia poisoning which is not transmittable.

If he had TB this won't end well......... Too sad to take a pic of him, but he looked normal colored. Pale but normal. And his back was straight. So I don't think it was that.

How woudl wrapping well clarify?

I highly doubt it was TB because he didn't have the open sores so I think you're fine. Wrap him in a plastic ziplock, then wrap that in a page of newspaper.

If you really aren't sure, you can leave him someplace cool in a ziplock and take him to a vet clinic for disposal in the morning. Maybe pack some ice around him until morning.

My fish disease book says TB infections progress slowly with loss of appetite, emaciation, popeye, skin ulcers, and skeletal deformity. I don't think Floaty died of TB, so you're in the clear.

I think I'll take the chances since those two most important syptoms weren't present. But i don't have any newspaper around, would klenex also work?

The only thing about the TB that worries me is that he was sick a LONG time, and he had VERY poor water conditions. How long does it take TB to kill a Betta Fish?
