Re: [Killietalk] Glugea questions
Barry has the same understanding I have of how Glugea operates. Right now I
have sediments in a tank that held sticklebacks infected with glugea
anomala.. I'll be exposing several types of newly hatched fry to the
sediments in cups, with appropriate controls. That should tell us whether
the stickleback glugea (anomala) is the same species that infests killies.
This will take a few months. Ed Noga has the adult sticklebacks now and will
confirm the parasite species by laboratory methods. - Bob G.
