Full Answer

Some of the photos of koi disorders and diseases pictured on KoiCrisis.com include body sores and ulcers, patches and raised scales, red blotches and worms beneath the skin. Active greenish round bugs on the skin, tiny white pinheads on the skin and white slime patches are also featured in the pictures. Additional photos include white waxy globules affecting the skin and fins, scales receding and falling off and a rough body with no slime, which is indicative of sandpaper disease among koi.
