The pond water is in excellent condition and it very clear. As luck would have it I changed the filters yesterday and added Tetra Medifin to help any stress this may have caused.

Am I doing enough? The injury itself is not huge but there are a couple of scales hanging off. Do I carefully tweezer these off? He is use to being handled and will allow me to lift him out by hand.

Any advice please? Thanks. Peter
