  1. Hi thanks for replying! I changed the water yesterday after I posted that picture (probably should have waited till after!) here is Gerry. Don’t worry for not replying, I’m just grateful for any help!
  2. We have been treating him for almost a week with the API PIMAFIX Antifungal Freshwater and Saltwater Fish Remedy but it looks today like he’s gotten worse? he had been looking a lot better!
  3. Test Results for the Following: Ammonia Level - 0.1 Nitrite Level 0 Nitrate level 0 Ammonia Level 0.1 Nitrite Level 0 Nitrate level 0 Ph Level, Tank 8 Ph Level, Tap - not sure if we have a tap for the outside pond? Or just collect it from the drop pipe from the filter? Other Required Info: Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? They are drops and it is the API pond master kit Water temperature? Not measured as it’s an outside one... Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 60 Gallons, over 10 years What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? It’s an oasis filter and a medium sized outdoor one. How often do you change the water and how much? We changed the water over a month ago completed as it was brown (!) have done probably 10% water change every three days How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Three days ago and 2 litres of change How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 koi and 8 different size goldfish (we are aware this is probably too many!) What kind of water additives or conditioners? An algae remover blue die What do you feed your fish and how often? Fish flakes every morning Any new fish added to the tank? No Any medications added to the tank? No List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank.Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. We haven’t done any treatment yet... on the main pond Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Fungus on top and face and tail fin, looks slightly bloodshot on body Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? stays at the side of the pond and near the water drop tap, burrowing into the side? Would stay in the lining very still until evening "If copy and paste doesn't work for you, quote this post and put your answers after each question."
  4. Hi all, We recently moved house and inherited an outdoor pond of koi and goldfish. One of them has become ill and looks very bloodshot/shedding its scales and has been acting off. We don’t know much about fish so wondered if anyone could help?! I have got a pond testing kit and the ammonia was 0.25 (which I have been rectifying today) the nitrate and phosphate were 0 and PH was 8. It has been isolated from the main pond, looks a little chirpier but also looks like it’s whole back will shed off.
