      Thanks M. Nguyen.
      I posted 3200-3500 because I calculated 2 times with 2 different methods. My pond in so irregular shape so I measured carefully each side and turn, each dept...etc. came up with 3200 gs. Second time I Measured all straight edges and used flexible tape measured all curves then brought total measurements into CAD design and the software indicated 3500 gallons. As my most earlier posts, I made 80-85% water change prior to first dose of ProformC because I had salt it it, tested with salt method (using liquid test kit which is 2 1/2 years old solution) and came up with 4800-5000 gallons (added 80 pounds of salt and test kit read 2.2%) The past Saturday I purchased the Koimetic tester and this good digital instrument read the water I saved in a jar 3.2% so 3000 gallons it is on the safe side.

      I checked with a few dealers and no one offer the scrape and scope, will make more call today.

      Thanks M.

      Thanh.

      Yeah you doing pretty much best at the situation now.
      We all love our koi and that’s a reason to be here
      Some koi may be old age and probably cannot take the shocks and weather is also not helping
      Once again keep water optimal and balance
      Best of luck

      I'm still following, Thanh. I hope it turns the corner and they all improve for you.
      Since you are showing nitrAtes and still have increased ammonia, I firmly believe you are under biologically filtered for what you are asking the pond to do. Please refer back to my previous post about putting all of the return water over the media in the 20g container. That will help but it still may be insufficient but it is best addressed when your water is reliably around 70 degrees.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.

      The pond looks very murky I think the algae begins to grow. Can I turn the UV light back on? Last treatment of Prazi was Saturday so it has been 3 days.

      Thanks

      Thanh.

      According to the instructions on mine you only need to keep the UV off for 24 hours, so I think you should be fine to
      turn it back on.

      Thanks M. and Steve.

      By the way, I am looking for a decent microscope but don't know much so if someone has experience and knowledge about this device please give me suggestion such as:
      Brand name, 40x, 100x, how much is the cost..?? Also is there a link or pictures of the common parasites and how to recognize them?

      Thanks.

      Thanh.
