      New Koi, Ulcer maybe?

      Hello, i recently purchased a Koi locally and when i looked at the Koi when i got home i noticed what look to be like the early stages of an ulcer. Iv Had the koi in my quarantine system for 4 days now using Microbe-Lift Broad Spectrum Disease Treatment. I also have tricide-neo on hand but not sure if i should use it or will it heal on its own. My water parameters are Ammonia:0 and Nitrite:0, and also i do daily 25% water changes.Name:  IMG_0903.jpg

      It does appear to be a start of an ulcer. The BSDT is a parasite treatment, and doesn't really treat the ulcers, but should have cleared any bad actors that could be causing the issue. I would approach it conservatively, cleaning and treating the area with iodine and then take a wait and see for a couple of weeks. If it improves, good, if it gets more firey, then treat with the Tricide Neo.

      I think that I would go ahead and use the Tricide Neo. Use as either a topical, using a Q-Tip rubbed on the fish to get some slime coat and then dipped into the dry powder, and rubbed on the wound, or mix 1/4 of the one gallon dosage in a quart of distilled water and spray the fish with this mix, concentrating on the wound, but also spray the gills and much of the rest of the fish. This spray will act similar to the dip method, but conserves mix, and allows for the remainder to readily fit in the refrigerator for use later. Prior to the application of the Tricide Neo, clean the wound with peroxide or iodine, using a Q-Tip.

      You would get much better results making a paste of the TriCide-Neo and using a Q-tip to apply it to the area making sure you get under the scales. When ever you see something like you had when it stated out you should just treat. never wait to see what happens as it will usually get worse.
      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better

      Here is a update after the first tricide-neo spray treatment, i did the second one today as well. One thing i did notice, i found a few other small spots that look to be the start of ulcers as well so i am going to treat those as well. I'm wondering if over crowding from the place i purchased her from has caused all those ulcer and not the best water parameters?

      Take a little of the powder and add a drop or two if water. Just enough to make a paste. The tips of the pectoral fins look to be having an issue as well.
