    Hi

    I'm sure I've read that you can use super glue for this type of injury too

    Hi keV I was wondering that but did not want to do it in case I make it worse.

    I see that thank you that's what made me think about stitching it at first. Someone recommended so skin glue from another group but I can't find it in the UK

    Hi

    Superglue was designed to glue wounds - skin welds very well as A&E will vouch for - the moisture helps to cure the glue

    Watch that you don't glue yourself to the koi

    Good morning I have been doing my checks yesterday most parameter's fine some slight elevations in Nitrite so I will back off feeding for a bit otherwise fine. I have scraped a few koi and cannot see anything which is good as nearly all the koi look fine. The three I have been working on are my big Kohaku at 80cm she has had damage to the body part of her tail not the fin area which is now healing really well. The Pectoral damage is not good I net very carefully using a spoon net then a koi sock. I had her out yesterday to try repairs one side is looking better but the other did not take so going to have another go tonight as don't want bacteria getting in. The Sanke has made great progress and is almost healed completely which leaves my Showa he has two great big oval marks on his back after anti bac and sealing plus some Baytril he is defiantly improving but not out of the woods yet. I have also been treating the pond with acriflavine to hold back the bacteria I did find a dead Rudd in the pond yesterday it may of been there a few days it is hard spotting with the winter cover on. It smelt terrible and its Finns were being eaten away now removed. Chlorine levels are minimal heat is at 21 I cant see what else I can do now except wait. I feel like I am on the right path with fighting bacteria but I always doubt myself when I cant see any evidence on the scrape.

    For general information, here is a compilation picture that I put together showing the best ways to compare the colours of samples to their colour charts to make it easier to determine the levels.
