Tony,

I stated in my response to Stu that it was likely one of two things. I also put zonata disease in quotations to indicate the unknowing aspect of the condition. Furthermore, I asked him to examine other animals in his collection before making and decisions. Therefore, I don't think my advice was poor. Also, if or some reason this is actually a pathogen, I've learned to just cut my losses before things get too bad...as this problem, regardless of what causes it, has been known to wipe out entire colonies of zonata. Lastly, you mentioned the reputation of the breeder he got them from...I don't know who it is, nor did my answer pertain to his or her character. I just stated that if it wasn't an environmental cause at Stu's then it likely originated at the breeder's facility and that they should accept some responsibility for lack of quality animals. Anyhow, take care.

Mitch
