Customer Question

I have a 4,500 gallon pond with six large goldfish and 4 large koi. Three goldfish have raised bumps on their body and on top of their head. They don't appear to be open sores. I don't know what it is or if it is contagious to my koi.

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest In fish health. There are several possibilities for these bumps, so some additional information will help me narrow it down. What color are the bumps? Do they look waxy in appearance? Are the fish eating and behaving normally for this time of year? Thank you.
