    normally for most treating the pond you wait 7 days in between for new treatments with water changes

    here is a link to some one with chilodonella Help

    i have just read it. this man had about 3 or four different parasites at once. maybe it will help

    and Malachite green and Formalin is what to use.
    hope this helps and good luck

    At a push 5 days with a few good water changes before adding mg&f and lots of air too as chilo targets the gills. It is usually a parasite that takes advantage of already weakened fish.

    It is up to you though if you treat them sooner than 7 days after fluke treatment.


    Turn off UV

    I had exactly the same problem, first found Fluke and then found chilodonella but after treatment of Fluke Solve, I waited 5 days and a few good water changes like Laura says, UV off, plenty of air treated with FMG and away it went

    Can't remember what treatment OP said he used for suspected Flukes in a previous thread, think it was Fluke M. I'm not familiar with its ingredients. Is it Prazi based?

    What I can say is that I have treated Goldfish with Praziquantel and FMG at the same time in the past (2 occasions) and had no ill effects whatsoever. I know of other people who have done the same. My confident conclusion would be that Prazi and FMG can be treated simultaneously without ill effect to the fish.

    Whether FMG speeds up the breakdown of Prazi is another question altogether, but this wouldn't be relevant to the OP as it sounds like the Fluke Treatment was based on an incorrect diagnosis.

    I know this is of topic . But its to do with treatments.
    If putting ST in the pond.
    It affects say PP
    What other treatments does it affect and weaken

    Hi Laura
    would you have a look at this and give me your opinion on what it could be?
    lost a little fish today with no signs of anything on scrapes other than this and canít identify! Think itís an air bubble but white Center looks too smal from examples Iíve seen.

    This isn't a diagnosis by any means as I've never seen white spot through a microscope in real life, but that looks a bit like the white spot I've seen on other people's pictures.

    Hi thanks for response and that’s the other thing I thought of but didn’t see either of them move?
    if it is white spot then I am currently treating with Kasuri formalin malachite premix and this says it’s for white spot as well? I am due next treatment tomorrow so will go ahead and do secondary nd treatment hopefully eradicate everything. Just not my fish.
    never felt so deflated over all this! Lost 7 good koi now most over 10years old.

    They are air bubbles.

    Are you using cover slips on the samples?

    Ideally a video of any suspicious moving things would be better.

    When you get your camera lined up zoom in with the phone/camera so it shows more of the sample.

    I have a fab little gadget I got off ebay....

    Once itís lined up secure it and you can video/photograph things easily
