    Multiple koi with wounds / ulcers.

    Hello,

    I have found 4 koi with wounds / ulcers.

    I have treated all of them and the fish seem happy still.

    My question is what is likely to be causing this?

    All scrapes are coming back as negative and all the fish are happy and feeding.

    Water parameters are fine as well.

    I treated for flukes a couple of weeks ago. Could this be a legacy of that?

    Is there anything else I should be doing?

    Thanks in advance,

    Andy

    After I had flukes and whitespot. I had 2 fish with problems. One still in qt with heat and salt.
    So it could be because of that. Same as yourself. Water parameter s all good and scraped. Nothing found.
    Good luck with them

    ive been having major issues with mine for a few months,costia/whitespot and flukes,spent more on treatments in last few months than ive spent in last 11 years,still have some with open wounds im treating daily with antibac and sealer,also doing a chloromine T treatment to try aid them by killing any bacteria off in pond,ive just ordered some dpd4 tablets as was informed by a mate that he had issues and turned out was due to chloromines in water,even though my water goes through a dechlorinator and i use sodium thiosulphate and my dechlorinator gets new cartridges every 3 months as they are so cheap to replace,,,,,andi

    Same andi. Never spent as much. On koi treatments as this year.
    My first year. I don t know if you can remember.
    When this build went up. I had lots with ulcers. NPS. And then I had chlorine issues.
    Plus cement leaching. It was a nightmare.
    You sorted it now mate.
