Ok I have a problem. I went fishing last week and brought home a bucket of minnows. I used an air pump out of my aquarium to keep my minnows alive over night. I put it back in my aquarium the next day.
The minnow were infected with VHS Viral hemorrhagic septicemia. This virus is a big problem in the great lakes. It's killed a lot of fish.
I have 2 zebra plecos that I'm very concened about. I'm worried about cross contamination. Suposedly this virus lives in the water. I just don't know if it will attack tropical fish.
Any fish biologists out there?
If my fish get infected they will be destroyed.
Heres what some info I found. I also emailed some questions to a biologist and the Michigan dnr.
