This was a fun read for sure. I can't begin to tell you how many gallons of tank water and medicated tank water I have had in my mouth and in my stomach with no ill effects. In fact, I dare most of the diseases to get into my body because I have probably developed antibodies against most of them. The big problem is that when I get sick, most "normal" meds have stopped working for me so it can get serious. So, Brooksy , if you don't drop dead 24 hours, the chances are good you'll be busting chops here on AA for a while longer. Besides, I live too far away to beat anyone else to your stuff so you can't kick off just yet.

Now to the SERIOUS side of this: SOME of the diseases that fish carry can be transferred to humans. More often than not, it's from direct contact to the body through open wounds. So you do want to be careful when working in or on your tanks when you have open wounds. No gloves, no love. Also, you might want to put a bottle of mouthwash containing alcohol in your fish room so that should you get a mouth full of diseased water, you can kill it off with the mouthwash without getting drunk.

Hope this helps

Andy!! I feel way better!! And I feel ok too. Don't think that stink water got to me.. normally I don't care if I get a little in my mouth. Like you said.. some listerine and I'm good. I really chugged it this time. Went to restart a siphon and there was about a cup of water In the tube that shotgunned down my throat. I had a little heave ho, out ya go and ran to the freezer for the "fancy vodka". Had to sterilize what had made it to the tumtum

Been there, done that. I've also had fry be left in a siphon hose and got them in my mouth too. You've heard of spitting watermelon seeds? How about spitting fry!!

Glad to hear you are going to be with us a little bit longer.
