    Yes the article is just over a year ago. However the bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus, is probably many thousands of years old and should not be ignored. It is still around.

    Not only a tank issue. A work colleague contracted a flesh eating bacteria while gardening. Seemingly harmless prick from an aloe almost cost him his arm.
