HITH is caused by a paracite in the intestins.

it is caused by poor water conditions and is mainly associated with cichlids - to cure you need to provide good water qiality - this is not considerd infectious

yeah I happen to have one cichlid in one of my tanks with this as well

and it is not contageous... Keep on top of the water quality and as well a good varied feeding and it should help reduce it some and keep its life happy
Also if you are early in the game you might be able to rid it completly with some meds, although they sometimes are just a waste of money...

True. Cichlids are the only FW fish that get HITH.
