Common in many types of guppies & feeders too
Suggest quarantine & treat with antibiotics before mixing
My lot of Gan's cardinals don't seem to hv this disease
Bro does this bacteria stay in the tank even when all the infected dead fishes are removed?

If its a bacteria, it will stay in the tank. Thats where you have to treat/sterilise the tank after.

my record is 9 months... I think their natural lifespan is shorter in captivity

Sorry for the mistake. I confirmed with the boss earlier and he confirmed it is 100 for $45 and not 50 for $45. Confirm cheapest in the market.
