      Sick Goshiki? Need diagnosis

      Photos of a 32" Goshiki. Redness and some white marks (parasite?) appeared this week.
      Any suggestions on what the problem is would be appreciated.

      So sorry for your loss. I wish I had answers but honestly it doesn't look like life threatening damage.
      The only visible marks I've seen a parasite make are things like anchor worms but that's usually a small
      red dot where it attaches to the fish.

      I'll at least give your post a bump to see if some in the L.A. area knows of more help.

      Also, no other fish effected?

      I appreciate the kind thoughts. All the rest of the fish are doing fine. Yesterday it was swimming and feeding fine.The physical symptoms looked minor so it was pretty shocking to find it lying dead on the bottom this morning.Seemed like a massive heart attack. Do fish even have things like that? Haven't had any fish deaths in years.

      Yes, I have had fish die of either stroke or heart attack where I saw them shoot across the pond and die with no other symptoms.

      I don't know of any facilities in SoCal that can do a Necropsy. Have you contacted any of the local dealers. If they are doing KHV testing they must know of someone. If not, you could contact UC Davis and see f you can send the fish to them. To me, the infection on the skin, looks like it started internally so that, buy the time it was showing itself, it was too late. A necropsy would conform what you had.
      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better
