My Talk/presentation on Fish TB disease
 
Hi Fishkeepers,

I'll be giving my talk "Mycobacteriosis (Fish TB) in Aquaria" on Saturday March 1, 2008 at 1:00 PM in Raleigh NC. I'm working on talk madly right now and will have the very latest scientific information. This disease is predicted by scientists to be responsible for about 50% of disease problems in tropical aquarium fish, so its no small thing if you're keeping fish.

My talk on Fish TB is part of the Raleigh Aquarium Society's annual 3-day workshop extravaganza. I've been going to these workshops for 20 years. They're great- raffles, plant/fish/equipment auctions, native collecting trips, and a full day of talks. Other talks this year are on setting up planted aquaria (Mark Denaro), catfish, wild Bettas, collecting in Uruguay, breeding marine invertebrates, etc.

For more information about the workshop, see http://www.raleighaquariumsociety.com

That is a good thing you are doing. The public needs to be informed.

Thanks so much for your interest. I don't know how I can easily send out this talk, since it will be on Power Point with major megabytes. Also, it includes some pictures that one scientist asked me not to put on Internet. However, I do have last year's article that was published in TFH and several overseas magazines. It's a nice article and contains the main points of what I'll be talking about. If we can get the people of APC to publish this article with pictures, I would be glad to. This is ideal. However, if they can't or won't do it, then I can just send the article without pictures to individuals who request the article.

Therefore, if you are interested in getting this article, either suggest how I should post it?? Or write to me at [email protected] and I will send it as an attachment.

For presentations in power point, one can place sound clips in.
I don't know if there is a macro that will make the slide switch automatically with the sound.
But then again, the file would huge with sound.

Unfortunately, I don't have a suitable picture of a diseased fish. Your Endler with the curved spine might or might not have TB. I had one similarly sad looking fish autopsied. I was so sure that it had TB. It did not.

TB symptoms can be almost anything. Death without symptoms is just one.

sounds like an interesting talk. I wish i am close enough. Anyways, I have a question that I have always wanted ask. Can inverts, like shrimps and snails, carry fish TB? I know i sound very silly but i am just curious.
