[APD] Re: Killis -- and arched back disease

I am interested in any info others may have on this arched back that Mark
mentions. I had a zebra danio that had it or something like it. Makes me
wonder if he was a snail eater -- after the rosy barb started eating snails
and was removed I still found a few additional empty MTS shells. I've been
feeding MTS to the big blood parrot in the cichlid tank who crunches through
them instantly, I dont want to infect that big guy with anything nasty from
those snails. I do recall reading a post somewhere about a woman who
contracted fishTB from smashing snails with her bare hand and being cut by
one. Does fish TB or any other parasite or bacteria cause that arched back?
