Lucky 13

13 days out of the pond and the first day that Cha Cha is no longer floating sideways or belly up! I’m working on keeping the water clean and minimizing stress. It’s possible the medicine was creating stress since some black spots have appeared. I don’t think it’s a bacteria infection and one website said…

Hmmmmm

After one week, Cha Cha still looks mostly dead. Might try out a yogurt remedy I read about online.

Still doing the sidestroke…

Since it’s a high probability that Cha Cha was pretty much dead in the pond, does this qualify him/her as a zombie koi? Still floating around sideways and doesn’t appear to be as peppy as yesterday.

Will Cha Cha live???

20 hours out of the pond and into the garage. Clean water, a little salt and plenty of oxygen. Cha Cha looked 90% dead coming out of the pond, but I think this koi only looks about 80% dead now. Crossing my fingers…
