Fish TB or Mycobacteriosis

  • Collection of information from Adrian Tappin on Mycobacteriosis posted by Chris (Link2Hell).


While searching for a green water recipe for a fry starter I found this very interesting

post on Fish TB or Mycobacteriosis on Adrian Tappin's Rainbow fish site

Adrian was a cichlid keeper of some note in Brisbane many years back but heading into

Natives especially Rainbowfish.

Once you start reading and note the symptoms some will go "I've had this with some fish"


That linked to these


and here


If you don't look at the other links you MUST look at this one. This is, A Fishkeeper's Guide to Mycobacteriosis by Adrian Tappin. It was revised March 2014

There is a lot of text that may go over your head but persist, especially the last chapter it may change your ideas in tank maintenance.
