dwarf gourami mate and DGIV worries

ive had my dwarf gourami for some time now and was thinking of picking up a friend.

my main worry is the risk of dwarf gourami iridovirus (DGIV) as we have had problems with this in australia, particually but not limited to singaporian imports in the past. with that in mind i figured id post here to get a more educated understanding before purchasing

What should i be looking for in terms of the individual fish ?
i have a QT tank set up, would 2 weeks be long enough or should i give it a month ?
Is DGIV contagious to other fish ? i have been unable to get a clear answer on this, some say yes some say no
In the case that i do obtain a gourami with the desiease is it treatable ?
