      No. Surprisingly I couldn't find anything moving from the scrapping I took off the koi or from the water samples from my ponds. I read one of the threads that said the black circles in the photos from the scrapping are common air bubbles. Thank goodness! I'll check some water samples again tomorrow to see if I can find anything moving. Nothing so far but I may just need practice.

      While you're getting used to your microscope, do you have medications on hand to treat should you find something?

      For flukes, which most resemble what you showed here, I like FlukeM. It is highly effective for flukes.
      For the other parasites, use a malachite green/fomalin combo. ProformC is the one we use. Do not use with salt above .3 though.

      Any time you medicate, always increase the aeration. There isn't a single medication additive (including salt) that I would put in a pond without upping the aeration.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn
