About a year ago I posted here when my biggest female agalma got ill. I suspected that she had the much feared zonata disease. Prior to her sickness I had lost an 8 year old male, but he showed completely different symtoms and I did not think the two had any connections at all. The large fenmale died a few weeks ago. Now, out of my original nine agalmas only one seems normal. All the others have symtoms and all but two of them have stopped eating.

I feel devastated, all these beautiful animals and all the work, time and money spent on them - down the drain. I have spent about $3000 purchasing the 9 agalmas. I will never buy another zonata. This is just too hard to risk experiencing again.
