      Newbie needs help.

      After pulling in my Koi due to illness, The Sanke has gotten worse. To me the wind looked as it was getting better. I thought I was seeing new tissue growth. Last night I noticed that it was solfing off. Today I took her up to get a closer look. I can see tunneling of the wound. I would consider it deep. My questions are, Should I treat the wound, and if so with what?

      Debbie,
      The treatment is the same as it was before. It sounded like you had Tricide-Neo and that was suggested in the
      other thread. So yes, I'd treat it asap and I'd start here:

      Debbie it is very hard to help you if you are starting new threads.

      Very sorry for the loss of the Asagi but it was in very bad shape from the start.

      The photo's from your other thread of this fish in the aquarium is dead tissue over the wound. Not white granulated healing tissue. So no, it really does not look better. The eye is larger (swollen) and the tissue surrounding the eye and over the brain is very necrotic or has rotted away. If you are going to help this fish you need to treat it, keep it warm in the mid 70's and salt or this fish will also meet the same fate.

      I apologize for the new thread, I will definitely watch that in the future. I can do the paste today. The water is testing well and within normal parameters. The temperature is at 75. I do have carbon filters in the bio filters, should I pull them out after the tx or not worry about it since it is a topical application?

      It's topical. Makes no difference.

      You can also apply tea tree oil if you can get or dont have the antibiotics. Apply it with a cue tip and make sure it gets deep into the wound. It works really well. The wound will turn white but then start healing.

      I do have an extensive collection of essential oils. I will definitely put that in my first aid box! Thanks.

      I wanted to let you know I followed your advice. I was able to complete the process with out any problem! I will say I am much better at Dx people than Koi. I was happy with my ability to sedate, everything went according to plan. I had no problem with the application of the ABX. I had a timer next to the the koi to make sure I was within all time limits. I was relieved when I was able to revive her. I was able to get a good look at the wound. If I were to guess, I would say that she is unlikely to survive. The tunneling of the wound looks too deep. As with all things there is a learning curve. The scientific side of me says we cant save them all. My heart says I want to save them all and keep them safe. So going further I want to prevent infections first, as to treating them. When they do happen I sure as heck want to ready to treat them early. Thank you for your help!

      I personally would advise against this.
