I have an air stone in the filter and in the pond, I just cleaned the filter and carried out a partial water change. I also add hydra enhance montmorillonite clay to the pond recently.
I checked PH all is ok
parasite treatment was kusuri fluke
my water is below 50, i stopped feeding them about a week ago ready for winter
I have a 9000 ltr pond with approx 12 koi, I just put 4 koi into the pond recently, I got these off my father in law, the fish that are acting strange are these fish
I used the correct dose of salt and added a little more tonight due to the part water change
the salt i added as per instructions 9,08kg bag for unto 9092 ltr
the large koi that kept floating upside down seems to have come round today, they are all floating on top of the water though
i think all filters are more than adequate for the size of the pond, checked water, have plenty oxygen going in. first part water change though since July, maybe high in ammonia?
I placed the bag into the pond for about 30 minutes then released them, they where in boxes for about a 2 hour journey
prior to this they where jumping and flashing
no dont think so
hopefully part water change will help this
I used dechlor when changed
I have a little salt left in my bucket as I thought this is good for stress, should I add the remaining of this?
I also thought it may be bladder problems
Yes agreed, I will monitor them and give them time, it also is weird that this is happening due to the weather getting colder (not that cold), water is just under 50.
ok thanks for your assistance - hopefully they will sort it out.
