    Damn meg!
    you've got a good memory..yep it developed some secondary hi on the top side of the tail tube and was a male to boot... seems as though it lost its secondary hi when it was starved in the QT.
    the fish that caught my eye were the Sundan Chagois, and the tancho showa that keifer sent at the same time as the Zebra SU.

    KHV is very specific and does not make goldfish ill.
    All indications are that goldfish can be carriers, but never suffer any ill effects themselves.

    The goldfish connection have NEVER been proven and is a suspicion at best and a 'the sky is falling' theory at the very worst. The reason is it has not separated out the presence of a koi carrier from coincidental exposure to goldfish.

    More research needs to be done to really understand this cruel disease. And this will require time. We knew nothing about this disease 15 years ago, Today we know some basic facts and have some basic tools. The KHV program and it's current research will being reporting it's results over the next 12 months so look forward to articles in KOI USA as the research moves forward. JR
