Does Touching Guppies Burn Them?
I heard that touching your guppies can burn them. Is this true?
I don't think you necessarily burn them but you take their slime coat... "away" and it makes it easier for diseases to get into their system so touching is a no no

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
I have been looking at fish websites to find which one I want to be on(this one!). On another site, a woman had a problem with her guppy. Another person said you can't help the guppy by touching it( its guts were hanging out of its rear) or you'd burn it with the temp. of your skin.
Wouldn't touching a fish in that condition be kind of debatable in terms of helping or hurting it? Also, would that be a time where euthenasia is obviously necessary?
