    Koi Problem! Koi are getting bent backs

    Steve,

    The wire end of the stainless steel end needs to be attached to some Earth ground, whether by a rod into the ground, to plumbing, the ground of the electrican circuit. Whatever method is selected it should be one that is the easiest and least linkely to cause other problems (ie. tripping).

    Jaco,

    Yes Organophosphates is a possibility and it was one I alluded to when I mentioned drugs. However, since the problem seemed to be occuring over a long period of time I did not place it high on the list of possibilities. Now if Organophosphates is used in this system on a regular basis then that changes the playing field..

    I saw in one of your feeds that you were concerned about electricity leaking into your pond from your pump, I had a pump that leaked electricity into the water, it had been happening for maybe a couple of years, during this time I had no problems with fish being deformed in fact the leakage was not found until my dog went for a drink, as soon as his tongue touched the water he yelped and jumped back fortunately he didn't suffer more than hurt pride.

    Dear Tammy ,

    Sorry don't want to say this but That looks a straight case for cull .Aslo it seems to be swimming upside down (might be you posted the picture upside down ) i think you might what to think about it.

    Regards,

    Well it should get a healthy and full life as long as it can eat . animals don't understand "euthanasia" they just want to struggle and live on - so if you have decided to keep it ,more power to you .

    Don't know what kind it is might be some of the guys will be able to help ...(if you have released it back then would suggest taking a small video so all can see the behavior ...)

    Also ensure you get to root cause of what is causing the problem and fix it ..

    Regards,
    KK
