The information contained in this report is based on self-reported statements provided to the registrant during telephone Interview(s). These self-reported descriptions of an incident have not been independently verified to be factually correct or complete descriptions of the incident. For that reason, information contained in this report does not and can not form the basis for a determination of whether the reported clinical effects are causally related to exposure to the product identified in the telephone interviews. It does not appear that this owner properly sealed the aquarium. Ideally, the fish should have been removed from the home if the aquarium could not be properly sealed with gas impermeable plastic and filtration systems turned off nefore a pesticide such as this product is sprayed in the same facinity as the aquarium.
