A very serious fungal infection. If not treated immediately they won't live another week. Look up some instructions soon.

Wow. Did the fish make it till today? I've had good success using Seachem Paraguard, but I'm not sure it's strong enough for what you have.

Greg....this is a very serious Fungus WITH a secondary bacterial infection. These fish need total lights out (to reduce stress) and a diligent treatment schedule. They have no way of screaming out in pain but DAMN!! That open sore is HORRIBLE!!! Best of Luck with this. Keep texting me and I'll help you out as much as I can, buddy!
At this point....I'm thinking a peroxide drop on the wounds could not hurt! I sent you a text on this last night. Be sure NOT to get anywhere near eyes or gill openings!! HMU today and let me know how it's going.....

Thanks everyone. I put a few drops of peroxide on the golds tail. This morning the gold didn't look good at all. I'll be surprised if he's a live when I get home :-( . The koi looked the same. I've got 3 boxes of life guard and I'm ready to fight this crap. .

Test your water parameters. Something is wrong for things to have gotten this bad. I'm suspecting an ammonia spike to be the culprit. I don't have any evidence to support this but I believe the fungal infection is not what kills the fish. Rather its from the bacterial infection that settles in from the open wounds. The redness around the infected areas appear to be bacterial infections spreading. So I would treat with both antibacterial medications and fungal medications. Remember to take out carbon, to increase aeration, and frequent water changes.

Water is all good. Sadly they didn't make it. I'm still treating the ones that aren't so bad. I think it has something to do with my filter.
