You might have thought you were feeding the best food? Or didn't know which one was best? Here's how to tell!

The Basic Koi Pond Medicine Bag

The basics in your pond / fish disease tool kit include:

1. An anti parasite remedy for use in the pond water that contains Praziquantel (For flukes)

2. Salt for ciliated protozoan parasites like Ich, Chilodonella, Costia and Trichodina.

3. Formalin-containing compounds if the salt doesn't work (remove most of the salt first)

4. A chitin synthesis inhibitor like Anchor Control (ECORX) for Fish Lice and Anchor Worm

5. Medicated food for bacterial infections.

6. Sometimes the ability to heat a very weak fish in a small quarantine facility will save these weak fish. So having a collapsible tank that you can loan or rent them then sterilize later is nice, with a titanium caged drop in heater.
