  1. #1

    Facing down


    Hi all,

    Today my butterfly koi has started facing downwards for a few seconds like heís staring into space, then after a few seconds he swims off normally like nothing has happened.
    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated, I do have a video of him doing it but I canít upload video only pics

    Parasites are often the culprit. If the fish continues behaving this way, you're going to need to carry out a scrape and have a look through a microscope.

    I was right - boing boing

    As per text message… Aurora Koi offer a call out service where we will test the water, overview the pond set up, check husbandry routines, demonstrate handling best practices, undertake a mucus scrape, diagnose any parasite issues, offer a range of treatment options, supply medications and when desired ‘train’ keepers how to scrape their koi - plus drink a cup of tea or two…

    Cheers

    Hi Pete,
    Gaz did a call out to my house last year.
    I can recommend it - reasonable rates and a useful experience.
