Hi Werner,

I do not see any carpox on this fish. What i see looks like an ulcer in the tail section, is this fish still alive?

If it is you should treat that ulcer quickly or you will loose the fish.

Is there any other marks on it?

Hi Werner

This is the correct way to treat a bacterial ulcer. If you still struggle give me a call. 0836254640

http://koi4u.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=138:topical-treatment-of-bacterial-infections&catid=19:medication&Itemid=59

If you have none of the mentioned medication then at least put some Mercurochrome or gentians Violet on the wound for now.

Normally Ulcers are a result of parasite activity in your pond. You will have to keep a close watch on your fish and if any further problems your pond may have to be treated.

I might be wrong but it seems like there is a cotton like substance on this area which appears to be dead tissue..... Could this not be Saprolegnia Fungus by any chance.

Hi Chris

I enlarged the pic and it rather looks like the wound is on the mend, I cannot see the cotton wool (saprolignia) if it has any I am sure the topical treatment will take care of it as well.

OK...

Have a look here:

It looks a lot like the pic indicating the fungus on this website.

I treated the fish this morning with what i had available, i was bitten by a spider earlier this week and was given an anti-bacterial balm (bactroban) to heal my bite mark, i used this on the fish in conjunction with an anti bacterial spray, how good the spray is im not sure but the balm is really effective. I prepared the wound area as per the article, i tried to get the balm as dry as possible before putting the fish back but the balm doesnt dry out.

I will just keep doing this process every 2 days and hopefully it will recover.
