Hi,
This could be the CYPRINID HERPES VIRUS 1 (CHV-1) also known as Carp Pox or
Papillomas.

Please help, sick fish Schalk10

Looks like Papiloma or severe Carp pox, but finrot also started.

I have suggested Acriflavine or Malachite Green for the finrot and salt and topical treatment.

Schalk has already treated with a broad spectrum Fungus/bacteria treatment that contains Acriflavine.

That's papiloma but the area was openend up & got infected and seems to be in the early stages of finrot because of that.

Paul's treatment advice is good. What I also like as a topical treatment is propolis spray.

Hi.

Did you get the infection to clear up?

I had one that had pox and I trimed it off but it grew back. It never got infected and none of the other koi ever got it. I eventually euthanized it. I had to thin out the herd and I couldn't sell it or keep it.

Clove Oil is good to put them to sleep.

Sometimes you have to make the hard decisions.
