Alysoun, I know you know this, since we've talked about it off list.  But I
want to make sure that novices who read this understand that if it really
were a Mycobacterium that you were dealing with in your tank, Clout would
_NOT_ cure it.  At this point, to my knowledge, the only effective way of
dealing with Mycobacteria is to destroy the infected fish.

That said, I'm glad that you _don't_ have Micobacteria in your tank, and
that you've found an effective cure!
