How do you know that your fish possibly have KHV?

This virus only attacks the common carp and koi. If your goldfish or other fish are also affected, it probably is not KHV.

WATCH for these symptoms and act immediately by removing the infected koi from your pond.
- SUNKEN EYES - This is the most advanced stage of the disease.
- MUCUS - This is secreted by the skin, followed by dry patches.
-HEAD HANGING - Down for long periods of time.
- SEVERE GELL NECROSIS - that gill tissue breakdown.
- ULCERS - sores appearing on the body.
- DEATH - within 2 weeks.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Some of the symptoms can be related to parasitic/bacterial infections, caused by poor water conditions. PLEASE don't assume that this is the KHV virus, until you have an accurate diagnosis which can only be done in Durban.

If you need the details, please contact the administrator.
