    Best Treatment to kill/destroy parasites, lice

    Hi there

    i was wondering if someone could offer me advice as to the best possible solution to get rid of parasites and lice as i think this is what is affecting my fish as i found small round like lice around the gills of my fish.

    Obviously i removed them but they are likely to be contained within the water

    thanks

    once you rid your koi of parasites (many of which can be seasonal-like fleas to a dog ) is the concept to make a healthy uncrowded environment to assist your koi's own ability to keep them at bay.....

    Ok Thanks, is dimlin available in the UK?


    Also Dick, by what u said above do you mean make sure that you have the adequate amount of fish in a pond and to make sure it is not overcrowded??
