      Unlike many, I have my own microscope and have taken the KOI course to learn how to scrape and scope. But by the time I notice a behaviour difference, decide to bowl and scrape, choose a course of treatment and order the meds, wait for delivery - the infestation or medical condition could easily be 2 or more weeks advanced. Like Cindy, I choose to have the items I need on hand, ordered when I have time to shop around and wait for delivery, often stocking up when I travel to the States.
      Understood. I guess I take if for granted living in a big city where meds are just a short drive away.

I toss in some food and she comes up with everybody else and gobbles up the goodies. Next day, same thing. This goes on for about five days and I figure it's only a matter of time when she doesn't respond. I'm thinkin' it's either a swim bladder problem or a tumor, or both. So I go about my winter cleaning tasks.

      UPDATE: Sunny is fine, swimming around with everybody else all day. I think she had a more difficult time adjusting to the cold water. It went fairly quickly from 70 to 55. I was really worried when I saw her laying on the bottom against the sloping side, absolutely lifeless. Saw her that way 5 days when I came home in the afternoon. She's fine now!
