    Marie saving the best/favorites was my very first thought also. one can only do so much, don't beat yourself up.
    as Sandy said... the ones that mean the most to you.
    I know it will be hard but it will be better than loosing them all.

    Thank you Duc, Sandy and Meg for words of encouragement and advice. I was sooooo depressed when I posted last and couldn't think of what more I could do. It's been really overwhelming. First my mom passes away right after New Years and now this....

    Needless to say, I've booted some fancy goldies out of their tank and stuffed 'em with the others so the Canary Crew, Blurt, and Origami are out of the 110. This cuts the occupancy in half and water quality should hold in that one now. I never even thought about the two tanks of goldies that can, if push comes to shove, all be evicted into a 20 gallon to spread the wounded out more. PP'ed the evicted tank (bypassing filters) before putting the koi in, just in case, though both goldfish and their tanks have been very healthy for a few years now with no problems. These add another 130 gallons if I need it.

    Took pics of Mikado today when I pulled her for treatment. Fin's looking a little better; ditto the iddy biddy ulcer near her gill plate. Sucks she lost her bulk she had when going into Winter. She wasn't a chunky dunker like Ethan can grow, but a rather thick but graceful cigar shape.

    Now she looks like this:

    And she's a good 12" in length, which actually is surprising to me--just about doubled in size since arrival. I've updated my first post with a new pic and measurements.
