I am seeing some white patches on my goldfish in the pond. Looks like the scales have been removed. Pond water is clear, and most of the bottom has been cleaned out. (just recently). Can't figure out if it is ulcers or what? This is the hardest part of ponding for me. Also, are koi more resistant to this kind of problem? Thanks for any help
No redness that I can see. Can't see any "fluffy" looking spots either. It looks like someone picked off the scales of the fish and those areas are whitish now. Sorry to make this difficult. Every time I see something like this, I want to panic but I don't. :) Seems like only part of the side of the fish is affected. They don't seem to be acting funny either. Although one looks a bit bloated. I am going to try to catch the one I am worried about.
white spot is just that, lots of little white spots, i wonder lori, have the fish spawned at all, they can loose a scale or two during spawning,and its the right time of year too, keep an eye on it lori, if you need more help mail me direct, see what i can come up with.
