    I suspect not mate BUT not had any experience TBH so maybe someone else will have a different suggested diagnosis and advice… ?

    I am interested to see what else is suggested.

    Cheers

    i would say a tumour also,
    plenty of video's on youtube showing removal of far more difficult ones on koi,
    but would imagine this would need to be done by a vet though, as it may need cauterising...?

    Slightly unrelated but I used to fish a lake Layer pits in Colchester, and there was a period where a few of the fish had growths like these out of their heads. They are have gone now but was a few months or more where I had a few like it. Don't know if they ended up dying or just dropped off, common/mirror carp are a lot more hardy than koi after all. There was never any reasoning behind it though.

    Hi,

    If you contact me, I can remove the growth. It looks like infected carp pox, but I would need a closer examination to be sure. I am in Darlington.

    Contact details can be found at The Koi Clinic - Koi Fish & Pond Health Consultancy UK

  20. Thanks samp09, john1, dbs Thanked / Liked this Post
