    Did I read very recently the cure for KHV is VIRKON? Really?

    What's the panic?

    I thought there was no cure for KHV.

    What is the point of quarantining for weeks on end.

    Bung some parasite muti in the QTank 2nd dose to kill the newly hatched a couple of days later and we are good to go shortly after.

    For parasites that approach can work. A few days is usually sufficient. Bacterial infections can take longer to appear, particularly in climates where the koi has gone through a true winter stress period. Where KHV is the concern, carrier status cannot be determined without the koi going through repeated permissive temperature challenges, and even then is not 100%.
    MCA and ricshaw like this.
