    Please help to ID this disease

    I have checked all my water parameters and Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia are all 0 and my PH is 7.0. I have a 12 X 12 X 4 feet pond with a Laguna 2100 Pressure Filter a skimmer and filter falls. I have this picture from my fish and it looks a bit weird and looks like the skin is flaking a bit. THanks for your help.

    Looks like a patch of scales have been scraped off.

    its also a bit rubbery to the touch. Is it a fungus?

    If the scales are not there, it will indeed feel rubbery.

    I believe this is an injury, not a disease.

    I have to agree with Marie. Do you have any other fish in the pond besides koi?

    yes. I have a 7 inch oranda ( w/o tail), a 6 inch ranchu, a 5 inch ranchu, and a 5 inch black moor. Is there anything I should do to treat him? By the dorsal fin, it did look like some flesh was abrased a bit and small tiny pieces were coming off. Thanks for your help guys.

    the other side had a little bit of the same. I found him in the skimmer this morning dead. He had a little bit of a yellow coloration on him. Should I be concerned for my other fish. The rest are behaving just fine.

    Do you have a submersible pump? Either the fish got caught in the skimmer, the submersible pump or some predator almost got him like a coon.

    I don't think you have any disease issue.

    Sorry you lost him.

    Nope, no sub pump, just a bottom drain. There really isnt anything in the pond that can hurt him, just 3 baskets of plants. He normally hid in the plant baskets when I go feed in the mornings.
