Ich discovery by science

This article may be of interest; it speaks of a new discovery about bacteria living within the protozoan parasite ich. The significance for us in the possibility of new treatments.

'Ich' discovery could yield new ways to treat devastating freshwater fish parasite

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I hope they do! I've got a betta that's currently dying from an advanced case of it.
