    Well the first question would be, how do you know they were exposed? Did you have tests done on your fish? My guess is not, and unless you're well versed in mycobacterial progression or have had a lab do a series of tests on deceased fish, you don't know for sure whether any of your fish have mycobacterium.

    The answer to your actual question is you do nothing. Go on about your business and wear gloves when working in the tanks.

    I used the same nets and buckets for acclimating. I also use the same gravel vac.
