| 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
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

under the water that you cannot always see from

|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.
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)
