I recently diagnosed my koi carp having trichodina. I have treated the pond with formaldehyde twice now and I am into day 3 of the second treatment. I have also salted the water. The water levels are good and I’ve increased the aeration. 9 of the 11 fish are eating alert and look good. But 2 have not eaten in last 7 days are lethargic and tend to sit near surface of water on their own… not sure what to do now? Whether to wait further 7 days and treat the 2 sick koi on their own with pp or do another formaldehyde treatment in 4 days? Please help NO sick fish: Fish ick treatment & Fish ich medicines

This freshwater fish disease page provides the common name, symptoms and treatment options for your sick freshwater fish. Before you use any medication on your tank make sure that you have properly diagnosed the freshwater fish disease and try to figure out why your tropical fish have the disease or problem to start. Many diseases are brought on by the fish being stressed due to transport or water quality issues. If you've just set up your tank, please read about new tank syndrome.This site was built to try to help keep your sick fish alive and eventually nursed back to full health. This service is not intended to provide primary medical advice concerning specific medical care or treatment. This is a free service operated by fish hobbiests who care about fish and keeping yours swimming upright. Understand that while salt is frequently used as a treatment/preventative for sick fish, it is no guarantee. It can even be dangerous to some fish (for example, cory catfish).If you are treating one or just a couple of sick fishes with any type of medication it's a good idea to place the fish(es) in a separate "hospital" or quarantine tank. You will want to do this for at least a couple of reasons. First, the medication would destroy the beneficial bacteria that have been established in your substrate and filter. Most medications advertise that they target only harmful bacteria, but this isn't always as true as we would prefer. It also makes sense to isolate the sick fish and prevent further exposure to your still-healthy fishes. Plus, there isn't any need to subject your healthy fishes to the stress induced by most medications. There are times; however, when you have several sick fishes, in which case, it makes most sense to treat the whole tank.

The tank used for isolation should hold at least five to ten gallons of water and be provided with lots of aeration. A simple air pump and stone will suffice. A box filter containing only floss, no carbon, may also be used. You will want to remove any carbon in your filters because it will very effectively remove the medication. It's also a good idea to use a heater to maintain a stable temperature, if not to raise it. Gravel and other decorations are not necessary, although I like to use gravel so that the fish will feel more comfortable with the new environment.

There is no need to cycle the quarantine tank or use an established filter. As stated above, medications will kill off a healthy bio-filter making it pointless to use an established tank or filter. If you are not using medications, you should perform partial water changes on a daily basis to protect fish from rising Ammonia levels. But, if you are using medication, follow the drug's instructions, as some clearly indicate not to do water changes. With these drugs, you will want to do a water change before and after treatment.Fishes that are sick fish are often already stressed. Stress lowers their immune system, which leaves them open to diseases. Therefore it’s important to reduce your Guppy fish’s stress level to help it recover. They’re probably already stressed out that they are sick, being moved to a quarantine tank and by the medication treatment.To treat the sick fish, start by moving it into a separate holding tank. Give it an anti-bacterial treatment, such as , that’s formulated to prevent and control fin rot. Be sure to add plenty of aeration and circulation to the water, as well as some or (1 teaspoon per 5 gallons of water) to soothe its stress and help it recover faster.
