Sudden Koi Death

Postby MichaelG » Fri Sep 22, 2017 6:22 pm

Hi everyone,
Two days ago I had a Koi who started behaving strangely. He’d been fine except for a bit of mouth-rot that cleared up over a month ago.
He stopped eating and spent his time nearer the surface swimming the perimeter of the pond. At times he would side-tilt slightly. He opened and closed his mouth at a fast rate. He died the next day. There was no visible change to the koi’s exterior.
I have another who has started the same behavior. I’m now treating the pond with Melafix.
The pond is 450 gallons. The Amonia & Nitrate are <.25ppm.
Many thanks!
Michael
