Diseases

Unfortunately, there are quite a few problems with the health of the fish in our beautiful hobby. However, a lot of suffering can be prevented by proper care. If problems do occur, you can initiate an investigation or have it set up. The road to a correct diagnosis is then very important. Wrong conclusions are drawn or incorrect treatments are applied regularly. To make a correct diagnosis or to have it made, it is important to work in a structured manner, and you must of course also have knowledge of what you encounter in pathogens. Only after a watertight diagnosis does a treatment plan follow. Unfortunately, treatments are often thoughtless and therefore poorly applied.

The four modules below help you to prevent diseases, to incorporate control measures into your routines, to conduct a thorough investigation that leads to a correct diagnosis, after which a well-founded treatment plan can be drawn up and applied with the right medication. All this in understandable language and substantiated with a lot of farmer logic and examples.

Module Z2A: Specific Koi parasites

Know your enemy. Recognizing the specific koi parasites is quite difficult. Many mistakes are made in this, which means that incorrect diagnoses can be used to implement incorrect treatments that only reinforce the downward spiral in which your pond is located. By means of a lot of (moving) images and explaining the specific differences and behaviors of parasites, you will no longer make that mistake (quickly).

Module Z2B: Medication and Treatment Plan

A treatment plan may follow after a correct diagnosis. An underestimated part with often disastrous consequences for the pond. The average description on the packaging of pesticides is completely insufficient to make a good treatment plan. Which groups of medication are there? What are the dangers? How and where do I apply them? After this module you will have a much better picture.
