New Kid on the Block

Post by DaveB on Tue Mar 27, 2012 5:31 pm

The koi in question is from a very experienced friend( Who has one of the best koi collection I have seen) who has overwintered his koi at 12 degs and his pond is now at the same temp as my pond( hence the change over now). Fortunately the koi will only be in the plastic bag for less than 1 hour. It is quite possible that another koi might be offered for sale at a price which I can,t refuse

I have just made arrangments for the a 26" + yamabuki Ogon to be transported at the weekend. It is a while since I have bought a koi from a hobbiest than from a dealer and appreciate there are risks not having a quarentine system. In the past in such cases I have given the koi a 30 second PP dip ( 1 gram/ltr) prior to releasing into the pond.And wonder if this is still advisable.

It`s your choice Sweetie ...

Were I doing a PP Dip Dave .. I would dose 1 gram per gallon for 3 minutes .

http://www.koiphen.com/forums/showthread.php?60194-PP-dip

This will eradicate the vast majority of Parasites ... with the exception of `encysted` ICH/Whitespot but have zero effect upon KHV /viruses etc...

Whatever you decide to do ... align with your decision first and then simply enjoy your lovely new Koi Babe ( Pics Please Very Happy ) and don`t fret about her thereafter ... It`s the Dreaded Uncertainty/Worry which causes ALL the problems ....

I will try the 1 gram per gallon for 3 mins which is a much smaller dosage than mine. However for longer. Perhaps this would be less stressfull to the koi me thinks ??. I will try my best to get some good photos

I went to pick up the koi and when we bowled her. We found a couple of raised scales. I was assured that whilst the wound did not look infected. It was already showing signs of improvement. However I personally did not like the look of one scale and If it were my disicion i would of removed the scale and treated accordingly and then returned to the owners pond.

I therfore refused to accept the koi at this moment in time as I thought it would further stress the koi if I moved it to my pond. Hopfully the koi will make a quick recovery and I shall be able to pick her up in a few weeks time. We shall see

Dave,

A PP Dip would have dealt with the raised scale issue Sweetie ... Very Happy

It has been used as an anti-bacterial med for many years with great success.

Good point. But definately not worth the risk without a quarentine system

New babes arriving soon after 28 day quarinteen in bio secure primises. I have just purchased 3 new babes. 6 to 8 inches. a gin rin shero utsuri, a tanch showa and a gin rin ochiba shagura . Should be ready to pick them up next when out of quarinteen. Heres a link for photos http://www.angelkoi.com/koiforsale.php?action=select&type=15&desc=New Shipment&id=232

http://www.angelkoi.com/koiforsale.php?action=select&type=15&desc=New Shipment&id=237

http://www.angelkoi.com/koiforsale.php?action=select&type=15&desc=New Shipment&id=210

Just a few little ones which caught my eye. The photos do not do them any justice. Let me know what you think.

Interesting that PP will sort out raised scales. We have one "quality" koi which has 3 raised scales and assumed it has been injured somehow.
