Hmmmm.....still not sure what to do about this one. Mixed reviews make it hard I guess. Sounds to me like its a hit or miss type of deal. If I were to get a sick fish would it contaminate all the other fish in my tank? I know Sharon already said its contagious, but is it only contagious to Gourami or is it all fish?
