      Very Sick koi... Seeking Information

      I was contacted by a guy in England that seems to possibly be a novice, and was panicking because his 24 inch 2 yr old koi is in really bad shape. Basically I believe he purchased fish and put them in his pond without quarantining them. The fish as a mucus film that is cloudy possibly a greenish ting. There appears to be leasions on the head between the eyes and mouth and there seems to be rotting of the tail. In my research it appears similar to Costia but after finding out about his purchasing the fish about a week and half ago I have started researching KHV. He has treated the pond with potassium permanganate a week ago however when I ask him if the water turned purple he said no. I donít think that it was treated properly. He has done 10% water changes for a week and did a 50% water change last night.
      I chatted with him just a little bit ago and he said the fish is still breathing! Iím amazed
      Can anyone tell me what the visible signs could be if it is KHV? Name:  6C6E3188-C3F2-4881-990D-ECB0AA84BF54.jpg

      So he purchased the koi like this or did it all occur over 1 1/2 weeks?
      It doesn't look like any costia I've ever seen... that looks more of a hazy white overall color.
      First thing this reminds me of is some sort of chemical burn.
