Unless your Koi has been treated for parasites, it is very safe to assume that it has parasite!

There are 2 main reasons for sick Koi and or goldfish : water quality and or parasites

Koi Video  NEW VIDEO 2/03/14  I was watching my Koi via the live stream under water camera for a few hours.  I noticed Sunny who turned 28 years old in June of 2013 laying in the same spot.

Because of her age, I am a little concerned.  As soon as the water is warmer, we will get her out of the pond and I will do biopsies.  For now we will continue to observe Sunny.  Water quality was spot on.

The point is, don't just look at your pond fish, observe them.  Isolating, laying on the bottom of the pond is not normal, unless they are in torpor.

On another note, you can order your own underwater live stream camera here.  You will be amazed what you see under the water that you cannot always see from above.

It has been said, "take care of the water quality and the fish will take care of themselves."

Truer words were never spoken. There are only two reasons why fish get sick.

1. Parasites
2. Bad water quality

Keep in mind that just because the water looks crystal clear, it may still contain deadly amounts of ammonia and or nitrite. In order to avoid problems the ammonia and nitrite must always be 0, zero, none, nadda, no other reading is acceptable. There are other factors in water quality also. pH, Water hardness, softness (GH), carbonate hardness (KH)
