      Question Redness in the body and gill of one koi

      English is not my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.

      My Koi used to be more white than this, but today when I inspected him he seems to be a little bit more red. He had redness in his body and fins. I'm suspecting Aeromonas infection, but still not sure about Monogenes and fish lice.

      He's not a new member and has been in the pond for quite some time. So I'm not sure what happened.
      I'm really thankful for your help.

      You should check your water parameters and post back here the results. Check for ammonia, nitrites and kh most importantly.. Someone will be along shortly for more info..

      Welcome to the forum.

      Shiro Utsuri are often the first koi in a pond to show an issue. Trapper is right, we do need some test values for ammonia, nitrite and KH. Also, what is your pond temperature? I know this koi is not new but have you added any new koi?

      Once we rule out that the water chemistry is not the issue, we have to determine if it is parasitic or bacterial. Do you have a microscope to check for parasites?
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn
