    mouth problems

    Been looking around the forum, and you all seem so very into your koi.

    I donít know if my 2 fish have the same problem or 2 different problems.

    Flash the first one has a lump hanging down from his mouth & has a enlarged whisker. (circled in red)

    trickle is the 2nd fist he has got a white mouth, the left is worse and on the top it is flaking. It only started yesterday and seems to have got worse.

    What is your primary filtration? the white and back fish looks like it could be a Flexibacter infection and the other fish looks like it has mouth rot. One of my fish had a Flexibater infestion and was treated with Baytril. Mouth rot could be treated with an aquarium treatment if your system is small enough.

    Hope things get better!

    I think the problem may be that they are in an aquarium..............
