    Good luck with it Fred.

    After we both went through the Fluke treatment at the same time, we are now both doing FMG at the same time!

    It's certainly not fun that's for sure.

    Mine have Costia, and there was something else on the scrapes too but I don't know what it was.

    Cheers RS. Amazing how quite a few people are getting more then one parasites at once in there ponds. Same to you mate best of luck with it mate.
    And i am sorry to hear of your costia
    Infection.
    The only positive out of mine. After scraping the fish looking for whitespot. Is i know the flukes have been killed off. For now at least.
    So fingers crossed for both of us mate.
    Did you use the malachite and formalin. In to seperate bottols
    As to seperate treatments and had to make your own mix.
    Or did you buy the already mixed up
    MG&f in one stand alone bottol.
    Hope all goes well for you
    Fred

    Thanks Fred

    Not actually bought it yet - Just about to take a lunch break from working and pick some up.

    Want to treat quickly so don't want to wait for postage from Duncan's site, so will probably buy NT Labs FMG or whatever is available at the garden centre.

    Duncan Says Costia dies above 28C, and last Summer my pond reached 28.5, so I guess this was brought in by the Koi I bought in December from a Forum member. Pip also bought from the same person and he had Costia too. Don't want to speculate too much in case I'm wrong, but it seems logical.

    As in bio starts. I had 18 months to 2 years. Of new pond syndrome before my pond matured fully.
    Si i now think it is all snake oil.

    Thats what made me build a QT grow on tank. I have never salted the pond mate. As it take to long to get it back out of the pond.
    And take now. Flukes and white spot.
    If i had salt in the pond. I would not have been able to treat my pond.

    I have salted my 450 gallon QTtank
    Up to 0.6 of PDV salt
    And used it for dips. In a koi bowl.
    All the info i use for water care.
    And such as salt i use manke sanke site.
    Loads of info on there mate
    I am going to start adding the clay that Andi has bought. Once i have got this treatment mg&f mix out of the pond
    All the best fred

    I had a phone call. From grandson.
    Grandad can t stay this weekend.
    There was my plan gone up in smoke.
    As it needs two to get fish out once i drop the water.
    So i sat and pondered for an hour.
    Sod it.
    Made the decision to leave the orfs
    Rudd and tench in there.

    So instead of adding the volume amount over an hour.
    I decided to add it over 2 hours.
    So the mg&f is in the pond.
    I sat watching the fish up untill 10.00pm. And they was all ok.
    Got up this morning at 0500am
    And all the fish are ok
    Orfs tench rudd goldfish. And koi.
    UVs are off.
    I also put extra air in the pond.
    So now it is a matter of time.
    I hated doing this. But had no choice really.
    Fred

    Its Malachite green and Formaldehyde mix. used for treating
    Parasites. I have whitespot. So i am using this to treat the fish. A 5 day course of treatment. With uv switched off. It says one tratment should be enough.
    But if not. A good water change then treat again.
    I have also just got rid of flukes.
    On this i use CT which is chloromine T for taking the mucus of the fish.
    Followed by fluke m for 7 days
    Hope this helps tom
    Fred

    Also RS is treating with the same.
    He has costia now. And possibly something else.
    Amazing how many people are getting hit with more then one type of parasite this year.
    Fingers crossed i hope thats it for me.

    Think you've had enough problems this year Fred, so hopefully this will be it.
    Just for reference did you use the ready mixed mg&f ?
