    Most common I've seen is costia. I only say that because I've had costia twice, in QTs with new fish that had it when purchased, and being in QT, was easily treated for. Had anchor worm once, years ago. That's all I've had experience with in my ponds, I've had a customer to have a costia infestation with no readily apparent vector.

    Cant be stored in a medicine cabinet , but that what comes definitely to good use is a mini-farm of aloe vera . We have a bank of aloe vera planted on our top most terrace . Its easy to maintain , requiring not as much of water. Many mother plants keeps on giving birth to many pups. When they have grown nice and thick , its harvest time and the gel can be lightly blended in a food processor and poured into the pond . Helps the koi very much and at a fraction of the cost of that what is bottled and sold as stress coat .

    I know Brian ! Then growing this plant would cost just as much as in buying a bottle of stress coat !
