      Jorge, I might combine my parasite thread pics and identification and symptoms with it, good idea.

      I'd like to eventually set it up where you click "costia" or the symptom and it comes up

      Thanks Karl

      Not that I have much experience here but Minn Finn and its use for Costia is definitely worth a mention. Just saying.

      Great list, if I may add to it based only on experiences and low resulting mortality. MinnFinn was studied my Nick StErne and he did find that 5 or so treatments of MinnFinn did wipe out Ich, he & I had a long discussion about his finding in San Diego a couple of years ago.
      Lice & anchor worm are eradicated by introducing gambiosa, they will like the Pilot fish, eat the bugs off of the Koi; I have not seen lice a/o anchor worm in over 25 years. * All ponds that I maintain have gambiosa (Mosquito fish), thus no need to worry or ever treat with organo-phosphates which are lethal for fish & the environment.
      Pro Form kills more fish than bugs, MinnFinn works for flukes, Costia, Ich and when I'm feeling a cold coming on; I sniff it and do not get sick...Wild, I know but what do you expect from a California Koi Kichi ?

      No, it has to be non-iodized, chemical free salt like you can get in the 50lb bags at Home Depot.

      Question DOES 1 teaspoon per gallon make the .3 for salt

      Add one teaspoon of salt per gallon.
      5. Twelve hours later, add another one teaspoon of salt per gallon.
      6. Twelve hours later, add another one teaspoon of salt per gallon.

      ? Question if i am under standing the above correctly 3 doses of salt at 1 teaspoon per gallon make the .3 for salt?

      If so 2 teaspoons would be .6 For salt. Question i put 2 teaspoons per gallon in my large tanks today.!!!!! now tomorrow or 12 hours from now do i just add the same amount of salt to the tanks or do i have to do 25% water change first then add salt to .6 and do the water change Within 48-60 hours after the third salt application

      I don't know how much per gallon, because we're usually adding it to 100's of gallons, but
      it takes about 2.5 pounds/100 gallon to bring the salinity to .3%.

      Best to get a salinity meter too.

      I just did the calculations and 1 level measuring teaspoon (5ml) should be about 6 grams and that added to one gallon (128 ounces) (3630 grams) would give about 0.15 to 0.17%, so 3 would give about .5% and for therapeutic treatments I would go with 4 teaspoons per gallon, or about 0.65%.

      SCARY list of meds. If you have lice or anchorworm, use gambiosa to eat them off your koi. Forget meds.
      For most of the other stuff, use BIODEGRADABLE meds such as MinnFinn. At least your fish wont die of cancer once cleared of costia, flukes or the likes. I haven't use any cancer causing meds in years, I'm against formalin & malachite green which is banned in many states. Also, where does your treated water go once you are done w/your pond treatment? Down stream and it will kill many valuable creatures there. Think of the consequences of using such toxic meds. I have managed to keep fish alive for 30 + yrs w/o using all the "traditional" meds. MinnFinn is the only one I will use in Q tanks.
