Thanks!

The fish's fins are intact. There doesn't appear to be any abnormalities with the fish - I haven't examined it by catching it with a net though for closer analysis though.

The fish haven't been fed over the winter.

Re: Urgent Help Needed for Koi (swim bladder disease?) #3
Hello Fishy-Fishy,

I do not have a quarantine tank set up at the moment and am not sure what sort of container would be suitable.

The fish appears to have general swelling over all of the lower part of its body. There doesn't appear to be any scales sticking out.

The pond is 13ft x 5ft and 5ft deep and has been established for about 8 years. The fish affected is a golden Israeli koi, there is another one of this type as well as a white koi together with five goldfish. All of these fish (with the exception of the diseased one)seem to be swimming around quite happily.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need to know anything else.

Urgent Help Needed for Koi (swim bladder disease?) #4
I have a koi which has for the past week been resting near the top of the water. Today I have noticed it swimming on its side and sometimes upside down. It also appears to be slightly bloated.

From researching these symptoms on the internet it seems as though it has swim bladder disease as this can affect the fish's balance in the water.

Is it best to wait to see if it gets better or is there something I can treat it with?

Please give me your suggestions. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks.
