    What is wrong with my Koi?

    Hi! This is my first post. I am an amateur but love my Koi. My problem is that 2 have died and another has blood just below his dorsil fin on his back. Another has a couple of blood spots on his shoulder and head. I watched them yesterday and those 2 would sometimes rub themselves against the side of the pond or the rocks. I am now thinking that is the cause of the blood spots. But why are they doing this?

    I have tested the water for PH, Amonia, KH and Nitrites. All levels are good. This is a 2 year old pond so it is not new water/ new pond problem. Most of the fish are fine and even the 2 with blood spots are otherwise acting healthy and are active.

    I would appreciate any advise you can give me. These are not expensive show fish but I enjoy them just the same and hate to see them suffering.

    Thanks for any help you can lend.

    This board doesn't have a Sick Fish/Pond Forum, so I'd recommend:

    KoiVet Message Boards - powered by vBulletin

    Register and then read Bonita's sticky at the top of the SF/P Forum.

    There are a lot of questions that need to be answered to be able to get at what's going on with your koi/pond.

    Best of Luck,

    Thanks, Don. I checked out Koivet.com and got a good basis for pursuing a solution.
