I really can't believe he isn't here.
If you didn't qt with a couple of your fish, the bacteria and parasites are most likely the problem. All fish have bugs and build up an immunity. When you mix fish, the problems start. I"d order...
Can't wait to have new CKK's :)
I'd check and change daily and no feeding. You do have a filter on the qt?
A good thread on gh http://www.koiphen.com/forums/showthread.php?147636-Our-PH-is-always-on-the-high-side&highlight=general+hardness
Always leave algae on the wall, you can remove the string algae. gh is hardness. The ph shouldn't be jumping from 8 to 9 with a good kh and your kh is good.
What are water crystals?
* oxide the ammonia* :)
Yes, no feeding. I'd keep doing water changes and using chloram -x and watch the nitrites. If you get nitrites, you'll need to add salt.
I can't imagine your ammonia being 8. Is it a newer test kit?
Give me your other reading, nitrite, nitrite and gh. What is the ph, 8 or 9? sounds like your pond is cycling.
You are doing the right thing, water changes and the chloram to bind the ammonia.
Never heard of it. I just bought chlorine and shock for my pool.
I have frogs and birds and only treat when there is a visible problem. The midge flies are a snack for the fish. Unless you have an inside pond, its hard to keep visitors out. A healthy koi can...
Hoping they get the koi out while it still has eyes.
Pretty but I don't have any yet.
Yes because his fins are gone and he can't swim anymore.
That would be my guess.
You missed this one totally. The koi is being eaten alive by the other fish.
Bingo. Birds, frogs can bring them in.
If I can get this bunch going, I'll have enough :)
Speak up. That fish can't even swim since the fins and dorsal are gone. So sad.
Mixed opinions. Try to rehome on craigslist or a rescue. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100923103940AAhlkKc
Is the scale over the pink area? The scale really needs to go if so.
If u only sent a piece of sedum I would have still been thrilled.
My lambs ear. Blooms pink
I got my plants and I couldn't be happier, the one plant I had years ago and moved and could never find again. Thanks FIT BMX so much. Water lilies, Stevia, Lambs ear and I call my favorite plant,...
Love the koi, kitties and landscape!
I'm blessed with good neighbors. My pond/pool floods their back yard fenced area when I dump water and that's where there dogs head. We help each other with other things and have developed a...
Short of drying it and holding it up to the light in sections and patching, no idea. Do you have fire ants that make the holes?
Thanks for saving them.
I thought that one looked pretty eggy. Keep changing the water, that spawn will make the water pretty nasty.
Spiderwort, I call the one that's blooming "Little Kelly Kosa", she gave them to me. Asian orchard? no clue. The other is a day Lily, not sure till it blooms. I thought the other one was Lamb's...
To empty the eggs
Can't see it
Are you sure she is eggy?
Are you talking about stripping the eggs?
If you have city water, you most likely have chloramines which is ammonia and chlorine so a binder for both.
Lymphocystis is usually solid growths, those look liquid filled? That's why I was...
I'm mailing mine today. Sorry but I don't know what any of the names are so I tried to keep the blooms on them :(
Odd that it is one fish.
Brando is right, gh, kh and nitrites would be nice. It looks like a chemical reaction, I've seen something similar in a koi that was shipped. Can you pull the fish to...
Aquatic worm? Looks like an earthworm but skin is clear.
Yummy for the fish.

The stories I could tell :) :) My dad helped me by filling up the spare tank and moving a koi for me. City water, no binder.
Nice job again! I want to see the hats :)

Need to know more about what he used. Was it a detergent? If its a detergent, he needs to start doing water changes with a safe chloromine binder
Wow, very nice!
Grab the test kits and check and see what's happening. The water change should perk them up.
