Did you flush the filters?
Ok the Ultimate is binding the ammonia. The kh test? First drop turns it blue, that is 1. Add a drop at a time till it turns yellow. Multiply by 17.9
If you are...
As long as he can move it back, I'd just watch. If it gets stuck, I'd use oil of cloves to sedate and look and see what's happening. Could be something like an irritation starting.
I looked into Tilapia for our farm pond but if I remember right, cold kills them?
That's what I thought with the Dimilin but now its Dimilin-X.
I'm reading. Looks like they enhanced it and are calling it Dimilin X http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dimilin-X-Koi-Goldfish-Treatment-Anchor-Worm-Fish-Lice-Flukes-diflubenzuron-/321073332408
The koi at 28 seconds is struggling to stay upright.
That's a lot of bacteria and bugs to mix together. Wishing you the best. If you are going to eat the Tilapia, how will you do any treatments...
I like the lady that posted a picture of herself in stolen designer clothes.
Got that storm too. Walnut tree down at work and neighbor lost his Bradford pear.
Wondering if you should look into KHV testing. It can mimic signs of costia, also lowers resistance for parasites. Some fish are carriers.
Ok first the declor. Most water has chloramines which is chlorine and ammonia mixed. What binder are you using?
Suffocated? are you running air and a filter?
What do the gills look like? Blood red? Wondering if they have some damage vs parasites.
Not convinced it's just costia. Did you scrape and scope? Is the skin dry and rough? Attacking the gills makes me think Flukes instead and Terminate won't touch them. The PP might have knocked...
Lock and a camera. A no trespassing sign and property is under surveillance. The thought of soap terrifies me.
We send a koi plate with stand. If we have a WWKC member there, they can pick a winner. If not we'd love for you or your club to choose a recipient.
They are all different.
Sorry for your loss.
I would be checking the pond for a turtle also. A cat, raccoon or whatever else isn't going to take a bite and then throw it back in.
With that many fish and problems, my choice would be Chloramine T for parasites and bacterial infections...
Thanks for helping them.
I'd get air to them first.
Dravin, would your club accept a WWKC friendship award?
And there would be a fishy smell
Anything that irritates the gill or fish, my guess, would make it uncomfortable.
If you have city water, it has chlorine or Chloramines (chlorine and ammonia) you have to add something to bind it so you don't hurt the fish's gills.
Any rocks on the bottom?
The WWKC friendship award is on the way :)
Are you using a chloramine binder with the water changes? Do they have something to hide under in the pool, I'm sure they are traumatized. Make sure the pool is netted, they will jump.
It was Nekkid_Fish You want to to get your password reset? Pm me your email and I'll get it to an adm.
Look for Carotenoids http://www.koihealth.info/koi-color.html
Ask about their quarantine and if they KHV test.
Ask in the trader/vendor section who sells it and to pm you prices. Wouldn't be fair for me to pick a vendor. I'm at work, I think my last one was BGD brand.
Tricide is an antibiotic ,...
Up to the club. I sponsored a vendor class for goldies at the Louisville show one year.
The heat shortens the life cycle for the parasite and makes it easier to kill. You might consider a bare bottom tank till you get the pond.
I have an air pump with plastic tubing running to an airstone in front of the skimmer on the bottom of the pond.
I would have started with the big water change and if no improvement, I like Chloramine T especially for bacterial gill disease. Do you have some? I don't think you missed anything on the slides.
How many gallons of water are they in? Goldie and koi are dirty fish and need a lot of space. Aquarium with gravel? That holds a lot of mulm (poop and food and bacteria)
Ich is tricky to treat...
Thank you :hug:
Very welcome. I still getting nervous thinking I won't do the microscope right. Just a matter of doing it.
Congrats on passing and have a good time
Sad for the gopher :(
I put your user names
Good job everybody!
I'm looking at "Safe" now. Thank you.
I haven't tried a tosai, if they are the size of my goldfish, I put them in a big bowl of pond water and pull them out and hold in my hand and scrape. I wouldn't try the gills but you can do down...
I take 3 cover slips and put them on one slide. I get goo from under the arm pit and down the belly to the anal opening and I get one from the gills.
When I line the goo up, I always put them on...
