    Help identifying

    Hi,

    my pond has been running for just over year and it has been rather successful I think. All parameters remain in the correct levels and Iíve had good growth rates.

    One of my fish has developed lumps over the body and I wanted advise identifying what they are so I know how to treat.

    Iíll put pictures below

    thank you for your help.

    Hi all initial thoughts are below


    Hello ,
    I have to make clear that as a laboratory dealing only with fish it is actually impossible to diagnose any disease or condition based on a photograph. I appreciate that forums and web sites make various claims based on limited knowledge and experience that can mislead those who need to know what is wrong with their Koi . For professional and legal reasons we have to explain the service we offer will differ with information obtained elsewhere .

    Based purely on the picture the white growths would appear to be caused by the Carp pox virus and if the fish is eating and behaving normally it is the most likely infection. It is a very common viral disease that breaks out as water temperatures drop . It is not usually a serious disease and as fish mature they develop immunity to it and the white growths will then no longer appear at low temperatures although this will take some time . There is no treatment possible and I would leave the fish alone as long as it shows no signs of being unwell . There are various strains of the Carp pox virus that can make disease outbreaks differ . If the growths become extremely numerous contact us again for advice as this can complicate the disease process .

    Best Regards

    Thanks for coming back with the update fuzzy, much appreciated.

    Fred was right to think carp pox, but think most will agree, it doesn't look like the typical carp pox we are used to seeing so it was great to get that confirmation.
