    did you check for chilodonella? And did this fish experience cold winter water or any lack of water change in water below 60 F? JR

    Bumping up this old discussion for Wong.

    Not only is there no consistent experience with treatments, but also inconsistency in diagnosis. Nearly a decade later, I remain unaware of any consistent success in treatment except raising the koi in the mud. I think it should be noted that reports of Hikui are far less frequent than in the past. Perhaps that is because hobbyists focused on gosanke now have far better filtration, etc. I think it more likely that the tendency to development Hikui is being bred out of gosanke over time. Maybe some of both?

    the one treatment I will try eventually will be cryotherapy, liquid Nitrogen at -328 F works on me destroying abnormal skin tissue. I need to grab the can from my derm doc since he is loaded with the product down here in the UV ray capital.

    Did you try the cryotherapy treatment?

    Here is a link to an article on a group of koi with hikkui which underwent cryo-surgery. Results were mixed, but a couple improved.

    Thanks Mike. I have a Sanke that has very minor hikui that has not increased in a year and half. It seems to heal somewhat at times, but then shows itself again. Most people would not notice it, unless you knew whatto look for. I was contimplating experimental treatment, but I am reluctant based on mixed results and what types of treatment to try. I will see how it doe this summer and maybe, just maybe, attempt something at some point.

    A drop or two of 410a should do the trick.
