I dont recall, but I think the info on the lateral line disease was from a web search. It seems like there were numerous things listed. While you say that information is widely available on the fish, it is perhaps too wide, and hard to sort through the numerous suggestions from all the sources. Anyway, I am guilty of not having time to go read all the sources, and often just rely on the local aquaculture store employees (who are quite knowledgable). I probably need tp give it up and find a better home for my little finned friends.
