Welcome. The safety part of me says get caps on the rebar.
Another great newsletter!
took me a minute to figure out what you hung on the wall.
That slight spike shouldn't have been awful. What is happening? You did the right thing with salt.
Salt has been used on such a large scale and usually for no reason...
Reading about alot of Costia also http://www.koiquest.co.uk/Costia%20Ichtyobodo.htm
Seems like it
Hope you catch her soon. That is one big cat!
I do water changes all winter. It's like a big toilet that needs flushing. I used Chloram-x for my chlorine and ammonia (chloramines)
Looks like carp pox, brought on by the cold. Wouldn't kill though. I'd reduce the aeration to what you did use before.
I would keep doing the water changes to get the salt out. Do you have...
It was an honor for us as the Health Care Committee, to be chosen as January's MVP. Thank you Karl!
Itís now time for us to pass the MVP award to the next deserving recipient and we agree that...
Great job Sandy
So proud of you all
I can't find Gene's but I found this: http://www.koiphen.com/forums/showthread.php?110061-Need-big-cheap-waterfall-basin
I don't think this koi is a threat to the other fish but 15 koi and mosquito fish are a heavy load.
I only use salt for nitrites.
That is pretty serious. Looks like ulcers that are trying to heal. How big is the pond and have you added new fish? Did the koi that died look like this one? Almost looks like bite marks.
You really need to pull her out and take a look for an ulcer or something stuck in it. How big is she?
Use your judgement. There is always a chance a sick fish won't survive treatment or sedation. Since she is already sluggish, I'd be more afraid.
If the ulcer is that large and you are more...
Way to go Sandy!
Chris, I dont' like the idea of pulling a fish for 3 minutes without sedating it. Karl has a good thread in ER about mixing the tricide as a paste.
Hey sweetie! Reading the post , be right back.
Congrats! And nice newsletter!
Excellent thank you. Shared with my vet and on the KOI facebook page!.
kh 0? They need to add baking soda to get the kh up, be sure to bind the ammonia. Happened after the rain, guessing the ph crashed.
2nd thought is have the temps dropped quickly?
If you have city water with chloramines (ammonia and chlorine) I use Chloram-x. Powder. 1 scoop does 235 gallons. I just round off to 250 for easy adding. Most of the vendors here sell.
FSA, NRCS and my Conservation were in the same office. Our NRCS conservationist has about 4 counties now that we share him with. FSA (Farm Service Agency) moved to the next county so I have a...
Since its new, you are watching nitrites and nitrates and ph/kh? What are you using to bind the ammonia?
When the water temperature starts dropping, a virus called Carp Pox can pop out. Warm water clears it up. Is it just this fish? Are you doing your weekly water changes?
How the heck did I miss this :) High tunnels and NRCS! That's the programs my office works with. I'm Conservation! Great pics! Any other practices?
Ok, what's happening with our inactive 3? Baggett, Flowers and Till? Need some help?
Congrats to all!
Love seeing all the flashing MVP's awards, thank you for the early present.
Additional information from our KOI instructor:
Guess it depends on the vet that you ask.
I'm sure I don't treat the amount of fish that you do.
I use a separate needle and syringe for each injection. I don't want to foul my meds either.
You can try feeding some peas to see if its constipated but agree with Rich, looks like a tumor or eggs bound up.
Couldn't tell. I have my syringes loaded and ready before I start.
Don't like it, I want warm weather back. Beautiful pond but keep the snow.
Dang you Florida and tropical places, that is beautiful!
Hi Randy! Clicked them both, bee you tiful
Hoping our 3 empty spots are turning in perfect tests! Just remember, you learn more by wrong answers than you do right ones.
So very cool, thank you! Karl, you've done an amazing job putting our team together and getting us to agree :)
Pretty impressive. Help is available to anyone that needs it.
