So do yall think I need to be wary of the fish version?


If you were exposed and never caught it, it could mean your immune system is particularly effective at wiping out TB. Wink

I still wouldn't put your hands in the tank with open wounds though, risking 6 months to a year of very unpleasant antibiotic treatment ain't worth it.

What other things can we catch from our fish?
This is a very informative thread!


Mostly gastrointestinal pathogens, including Salmonella (as already mentioned), Aeromonas sp, Plesiomonas shigelloides, and Vibrio cholerae - all of which cause diarrhea. See here (theres a PDF link).

I did think you were in the health sciences field - saw what I thought was a Gibco/Invitrogen media bottle used for fertilizer in one of your pictures. Laughing

You saw correctly, it is indeed an Invitrogen bottle that was originally filled with horse serum Smile
