Well, this morning he’s eating so fingers crossed hey…. Yeah I agree we all need warm weather. Lots of it, then we can get all the jobs we need to do outside, like fix the Qt and take an old chimney stack down.
Guess it just takes a white koi a long time to settle down, but I should know as my male shiro is the same when we caught him the other year and he had trich, all his blood vessels burst and he looked like he was bleeding. I think that took about 4 weeks to subside. He does the same when you catch him for anything.
I have to say though, when I went over there this morning and he was sat at the other side of the pond you should have seen the speed he swam over to meet me for food, greedy thing.
Fingers crossed for all the new fish….
I don’t know, I’m yet to think positively about this. But this is the first afternoon that the male has eaten. As soon as I went over with the white pot.. (He was still sat at the bottom of the pond mind) he came over straight away and actually started to push my other fish out the way… I can only hope that the salt bath did him some good.
While cleaning my filter, I watched them all very carefully he’s swimming a lot slower now, and just in general doesn’t seem as erratic, the female as far as I’m concerned likes sucking on the liner, because she does nothing else till you chuck food in and then she scarpers across to gobble as much as she possibly can.
I watched for 30 mins and no flicking!!!!!
This is a first….
Will keep a close eye on them all as per usual. Filling up again with fresh water, through the decholrinator of course…. Heater is on at steady 16 degrees, will def leave it on, something seems to be working. Be it the warmer water, the sansai in the food and in the pond or the salt bath. FINGERS CROSSED!!!
Thanks for listening, and being there…
