Columnaris
 
I am positive my fish have Columnaris -- In a tank of Guppies.. I just recently tested the tank and everything is fine.

The infected fish were new purchases.. I didn't quarantine them because they looked so good when I got them. Dx Will my other fish get infected? I just treated the tank with Tetracyclin for now, I have nothing else on hand at the moment. :/

Thank you!

Columnaris is highly contagious. Keep your water clean, and since it's bacterial, what you treated my be effective. Have no clue for sure.
