It seems I've acquired fish TB with my rice fish from Asia (&^#[email protected]*#, I know!!!) and would like to add a UV sterilizer to the tank. I'd like to get coralife turbo twist but all the stores are out-of-stock, waiting for the new model coming out in the next 1-2 months. So does anyone have any 9W unit for me to rent as a temporary measure?

:(

Thanks!

I doubt the UV will deal with the problem. It is practically bomb proof.
At this point I think controlling the spread by killing bacteria in the water column should do the trick. At least that's the reassurance I got after reading a bunch of articles on it. Given that the mycobacterium is widely present, is rather an opportunistic pathogen, with only a few of my fish showing the symptoms at this point (knocking on wood) I hope to treat the water, keep up the fish health and hopefully have it go back to being dormant.

Got elbow gloves for the tank though...
