    IMG_1358.JPG I lost 2 bettas to what seems like graphite disease. It killed them within hours. One of my tanks in contaminated and the other one has been in contact with it.

    Will an UV sterilizer help or do I have to throw everything out and start from 0?

    How do you know it has tuberculosis or graphite disease?

    To me this looks more like Columnaris, a relatively common bacterial infection in aquarium fish.
    Columnaris is not the same thing as tuberculosis.
