I only have bleach though so if I can use that then I won't run to the store
Vinegar will not kill it.. please read the new post on mycos..

Mycobacteria
Then I guess my CT and other bettas who were in contact with the disease talked about in this thread are super bettas.
I think this "Mycos" is a different disease than what this thread was originally posted for.

when the fish is weakened it may get other disease.. but the underlying mycos is the issue. There is a mycos strain that looks like columnaris. If you treat fuzzy patches with meds for columnaris, and get no results. You have mycos..

no.. you just may have a strain that moves slower but is still killing your fish. there are several strains.. and your fish may have more than one. Your symptoms I had in a few of my fish... go read that post.. and the attached article

I doubt the same strand that killed my VT in less than 48 hrs is moving in my CT for longer than a year.

I feel like we're back at square one?
I orginally thought Myco strains existed in almost every fish in the trade, often remaining dormant.
Now MT is just the same thing, another Myco that is staying dormant, in most fish, but something is causing it to act up for some people but not others?
If 70% of store fish really do have MT, we are not seeing a problem from most of them, are we? What makes it go deadly? I do know MTB can remain dormant in humans for an awful long time, like many diseases, just wonder what sets it off in these fish if they all have it.

So far, the general consensus has been that it could be columnaris but it's a form we never seem to encounter in non-blue fish. Only a necropsy or tissue sample could really tell. If we could only identify the strain of bacteria we're working with.
you are dealing with mycos... if you treat for columnaris and get no results.. mycos.

It is NOT dormant. Did you read the linked article? Some move slower.. and different strains give different symptoms. Your fish can have more than one.. and have complications in addition. Some strains are more deadly than others. You destroy the killers and manage the others. Go read that article..

No.. there are MORE than one strain. The Triplex acts very different than marinum..

That grey patch along the back and the fins ate off like this is mycos. NOT columnaris.
