    i recently took a koi out of my pond to treat him for HUGE ulcer...
    the ulcer was the the tail end section of his body...
    it was about the size of a nokia 8210 and it went deeper than its spine!
    his bones were exposed too...
    so i dosed it with some bacterial infection medicine and after 3 weeks(now)
    the ulcer has almost healed...
    but his scales are not too good... therez one that turned red and is very swollen... its near the gills...
    also i've noticed there are millions of tiny white worms floating about the tank! its a 4 feet tank with overhead and external eheim 2213 filters...
    please help...
    i actually need the tank to plant it in abt 2 weeks...[]

    These are probably those white worms that are present if your fish is eating a lot and a lot of waste is produced. Probably also cause high protein in the water.

    Not too sure how to get rid of them totally though

    I was told to reduce feeding... they'll go away eventually.

    oh i thought it was more serious than that... like some parasite or something laid eggs in the fish thats hatching by the millions...
    hehe...
    but the fish is not getting much feeding... so i should wash out the filter media?
    (damn eheim 2213) super marfun to clean...[] []

    that will help for a while, but they'll come back.
    Not too sure what medicine to use to clear them out once and for all

    stop or cut down feeding for few days, salt treatment and do more frequent partial water change should eliminate those " worms " , cheers !

    You'll end killing beneficial bacteria too. Plus I'm not too sure whether tank glass will crack or not. I'm wondering if the organic baby bottle wash can be used.
