      Can someone identify what these moving green things are on my koi?

      are these parasites? at first I thought it was piece of algae, but upon closer inspection they seem to move and squirm around. No idea what these are, any idea guys?

      Those are fish lice and they will kill your Koi. You have a huge infestation. I have not seen that many on a Koi in years. You need to order DimilinX as soon as possible.

      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better

      Thanks. I have ordered dimilin x, gonna take a week or more to get here. Have also order Hikari cyropro which contains cyromazine. Havenít used these before. Can I use the the cyropro to treat the infestation first until the dimilin arrives?

      For future reference, you can get Dimilin X on Ebay and it will arrive much more quickly. They have some listed that would arrive by Wednesday (for me).
