How budging are the eyes? The thing I would watch for with staying on the bottom is redness or ulcers on the stomach
I agree with Rich, flying saucers are trich. I've had luck with Proform and I wouldn't do additional treatments with the chance of weakening the fish going into winter.
Ever hand fed and felt the suction? Kinda scary with the bigger koi.
I looked for the thread last night, its happened before here on a couple threads. I think the thread said after they get a taste, it continues.
You need to remove and separate the koi that is eating the other koi
First guess is a water problem. That's a lot of koi in a 120 gallons. Do you have test kits? Do you have a binder to do water changes?
From Karl's ER sticky :
Maybe you could sell your rock. It's high dollar here but only around the edges and for my fire pit.
I've never done under the arm pit. The middle is my choice, when on the back the organs drop.
Need to find out the source of the mosquitos. Planters? Pond? If its water that you want and they are laying there, I use Mosquito dunks to float in the pots.
So glad you are here for your input :)
Wonderful as usual! I see Spike
I have lavender by my porch at the farm. I see bees and other bugs on it even though its supposed to repel bugs.
OMG I can only imagine the excitement when you spotted these koi, amazing!
Most excellent, thank you for all involved!
Max, I'll catch up in the am. Heck of a weekend. Son wrecked his truck and then on the way to the farm this am, hubby found out one of his crew had passed away.
Warm water shortens the life cycle. What type of fluke are you treating? http://www.aquameds.com/koi-pond-maintenance#.VDlVxCx0xjp This site says 50 degrees.
Did you use a chloramine binder when you did the water change and do you have gravel on the bottom.
I flush my bio filter with pond water weekly.

Question from D
"To be honest are you sure this is tumour how does it feel is it firm to the touch? or can you still separate the filaments?"
If its slow growing and the fish isn't struggling and the other side is ok, I'd try the salt in a hospital tank.
Wish I knew more about how to treat but just an opinion. Still watching for...
Starting to lean toward iodine salt treatment:http://www.examiner.com/article/salt-why-or-why-not
Looking for a cause and solution
Still researching. John calls it gill goiter http://jnfkoifarms.com/symptomsofkoi.html
I'll get there in person one year!
Amazing Max! My back hurts just watching.
so cool, thought I missed it :) :pullup:
It looks like a good thread but since I'm not a member, I can't see pictures.
Never seen anything like that, let me see if Spike, Karen or Duncan has.
You 2 are starting to look more alike :)
Excellent, thanks for sharing. And tell Jerry, thanks for trying to save the fish :(
Anxious to hear about treatments.
Scary stuff. Glad you have the line out. I just put new netting over my pond.
dmich, an excellent free course at http://koiorganisationinternational.org/ KOI 101
And our ER sticky from Karl S is excellent to print out for a binder.
No problem. Always a compliment to have the same thought as you :)
I have pics of that fish in my PP presentation. Dr. Lawler was extremely helpful
Ok going back and reading an old thread, my presentation can be downloaded if you can get it to work. ...

Will look for it unless you have a link. Mine didn't have a smell
Mine clumped and I used, just harder to mix.
I replaced mine yesterday.
An excellent choice, congrats!
So sad. I moved to main.
