Today I doctored 2 koi with fin rot.
Used anesthesia Phenoxyethanol (Phenoxetol) drug at 6 ml per 10l water on small koi. The largest was 25cm and it was knocked in 3-4 seconds.
I thins the dose can be revised for small koi to 6ml per 10l water.
the last one had a small part of the fin missing so I did him too.

It should take 30 to 60 seconds and about 90 + for bigger fish.

Anyway, you can be proud of what you have done. By tomorrow the medication will be off. If there is no redness, please leave them. The redness on the dorsal fin did not look too bad, so no reason to be too concerned.

First: THANK U THANK U THANK U THANK U THANK U THANK U!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe I should have kept them longer???? They started moving after 2min.
I removed them the moment they turned on their side and when I handled them they did not move.
I was scared not to kill them.
Now the red erosion on the fin of the yamatonishiki I noticed yesterday. It was on the leading ray of the dorsal fin, so I was worried that if it progress it is not a good place to cut.
By the way I did not cut the affected area. Prepared every thing and chickened up. Should i have cut them????
I am becoming Dr Frankenstein.LOL

Neli, we normally trim a fin if the infection is spreading and you cannot stop it. In this case it is a slight redness and not a full blown infection eating away at the fin. Do not cut unless you post a photo. Please.

I do not know the ph and hardness of your water. In your case I will halve the dosage of the Phenoxetol next time.

Neli the way we judg it is by watching the koi very carefully from the time the koi goes onto its side in the anesthetic mix .
Once it goes check the tail for movement then once it stops lift the koi out if the tail moves its not fully under .
if so place back in the water for a few more seconds testing to see if the tail moves, as soon as it stops lift it out treat then return to a water flow and gently hold there until the koi comes round then gent;lly release, using this method of observation we have never lost a koi to anaethetic unless we are euthanizing the koi/
