    Question Koi Flashing - Need Confirmation

    Good afternoon,

    So i've had this pond for a year and around half of the fish have got koi pox. It's beginning to clear up on some of them now but not on others.

    I looked closer and saw my asagi and yamabuki flashing. Did a scrape and got some images, they don't appear too clear on my phone images but i'm thinking flukes - just need a second opinion + what you believe is the best treatment


    I much appreciate any help I can get, thank you!

    Definitely flukes

    I'm treating my pond with Fluke Solve Plus at the moment, although I prefer to use Kusuri Fluke M. (Couldn't get it quickly enough this time).

    Clean your pond and filters well prior to treatment.
    Potassium Permanganate is often used prior to the actual fluke treatment.

    Keep u.v. off for the duration of treatment. Bypass drum if you have one.
    Ensure plenty of air is being pumped in to the pond.

    Sorry, haven't got time for a longer explanation, I'm about to go out for dins.

    Good luck.

    Ordered some fluke solve plus, will be here tomorrow. Hopefully it all goes well!

    I'll be turning the UV off. I don't have a drum only an eazypod so should be fine on that front
