Maybe, but then again confinement in an aquarium has been shown to promote
this infection which is very rare in the wild. Also temperature might have been
a barrier to spreading in the wild. Some disease we see in aquaria are almost
unknown in the wild, I don't release fish either but don't rush to make a
judgment from one case in one tank.
