Question Getting Fish TB Water in Eyes.

Hello All,

I feel so silly writing this post but after reading on the internet about fish TB I have scared myself.

I have a 50 Gallon guppy tank and I recently purchased new guppies which started showing signs of TB and started dropping off one by one. Today I decided to take them out and quarantine what I had left and drained the tank. I had drained the water into a bucket and in carrying it to the drain I tripped on the cat who got under my feet and I dropped the bucket which back splashed up into my face and for sure into my eyes.

I was wondering how concerned should I be?

I am a foreigner based out in Asia and I did go to a hospital nearby after an internet search, but when I tried explaining the situation they thought I was crazy.

Any advice would be helpful.

Fish TB is on a very short list of diseases you can get from your pets. It's pretty rare though - if I recall correctly you're more likely to get it from a public pool or something. So, while it's good to be aware of, I don't think you should freak out.

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing, doesn't go away"

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
