      Koi Sick

      Finally, re-homed 4 Koi on Saturday.

      Had too many, and knew it.
      In the process discovered this one with a nasty condition.

      is this an obvious affliction?



      Water was perfect earlier in the year, but been on a long work cycle, and unable to get rechecked

      So what is your intention of posting here?
      How long are you in the hobby? Would you like to learn how to keep your koi healthy or you already got the grip of the whole ordeal

      First thing that came to mind was some sort of chemical burn.

      Thanks for the response.
      Sounds awful. Not sure what could have gotten in the pond.
      If that's right, he's okay to stay with the other fish?

      If none of the other fish are showing signs similar to this one, I would say it is viral. The typical chemical burns would be high ammonia, high or low pH, or some form of chemical spill. Good maintenance of water quality would prevent the first two, and any of these would most likely affect all of the fish, not just the one. If viral, then it could affect one fish and one fish only, it could transfer to other fish or not transfer readily, with on time telling the case. I would not transfer the fish to someone else without disclosing the problems and allowing them to make some form of educated guess as to whether they would be willing to keep the fish with the possibility of it contaminating other fish. Whether to keep it with the rest of your fish, it has already been in that pond and has not affected the other fish yet, so keep it there, not much chance of doing more damage.
