    My koi's face and body is turning red (normally white)

    I'm sure something is wrong with my koi. The koi is swimming and eating normal, not isolating.but the white areas are turning a reddish pink especially the face. It seems to be under the skin. When we picked up the issue, the water quality was 80 nitrate, 0 nitrite, 0 Ammonia, 7.8 pH, 180 kH, 0.36 ppm Salt. I used Ultimate since and gave them an enrofloxacin treatment. He seem to improve a bit. The water source I use which is through the tap, I tested it, the kH was 120, there was chlorine, no nitrates, nitrites or ammonia, but I usually do only a 20% water change or use dechlorinator. The pond is concrete. I use a pressure filters in my ponds. I use Kodama All Season koi food. I have been dealing with Koi for about 5 years. I feed them what they can comfortable eat within 5 minutes and check the ammonia & nitrites regularly, never really have an issue there. I back flush 2 times a week. My ponds are 16' x 10', I have about 8 koi there ranging between 12" and 20". It is filled to about 24" with water and they have a proper circulation system installed. The pond used to have 15 koi but I built another and transferred a few. The filters are definitely mature so that's not a question. Since the problem started I monitored it closely, the pH was 7.9 in the morning and 8.0 in the evening. Please help, does anyone know what this is? Thanks
