    You know that disease that fish get? You know the one. They get covered with white spots and it looks kinda gross. Well maybe gross isn't the right word. Maybe "icky" is more correct. Yeah, that sounds good. Walmart fish are famous for having it. Seriously. You ever go to Walmart and look at their fish? Why do they even sell fish? Nothing like standing in front of the fish tanks waiting for "Dale" the produce guy to come scoop you up some fish. I mean really. He can barely sort the bananas correctly and now he is handling living things? Please go buy your fish somewhere else. Anywho. What the heck is the name of that thing that causes the white spots?
