      I use it every year for my Tosai. I was given the formula by Hosokai and it works very, very well.

      Billy, here is your post from 2008

      From the web.
      OXOLINIC ACID
      DOSAGE: 2 teaspoons of Oxolinic Acid Powder for every 1 pound of koi pellets. Mix the medication with approximately 2 ounces of water. Add this to a spray bottle, and spray the entire contents over the feed. Let air dry. Note: It is important that you do not use any heat element to dry the feed because it will destroy the medication.

      Use a fan to expedite the drying process if necessary. Feed the medicated feed to the fish once a day for two weeks. Do not feed any other food except for the medicated food during treatment time. You do not need oil or gelatin to get the medication to stick to the food. This is a waste of time, and it pollutes the water.

      There are 16 different forms of Aeromonas. Including viral strains of Aeromonas that cannot be cured with the medications we have today.

      We like to use a combination of Oxolinic Acid mixed into the feed, and Potassium Permanganate in the water to prevent a secondary fungal infection from developing on the ulceration's.

      Many people cure the Aeromonas infection with the Oxolinic Acid and then find after the completion of the treatment, the sores are still open and red. This is due to saprolegnia fungus that has invaded the ulceration's and is acting like a parasite, eating away at the sores. This is why it is important to use an anti-fungal medication in the water along with the Oxolinic Acid in the feed. We like the Potassium Permanganate best, but you can use Malachite Green or Forma-Green in the water instead.
      My opinions in ER and on this forum are mine only. Use my advice at your own discretion.

      Billy, he's traveling in Japan currently. It may be in his notes, I'm not sure but I don't expect to forward a formula to you until he is stateside.
