    Hard to tell from the pic. It could be a leech?

    I don't really know about koi as they're delicate little things.

    But I've caught carp when fishing in the winter with leeches on. I think they pick them up by them sitting inactive on the lake bed due to the cold.

    The carp don't seem physically affected by them. Although I imagine it causes them to jump and flash to shake them off.
