Participants were aged 40 through 75, and were screened to be free of cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or diverticulosis. If all goes well, I will be able to enjoy them for many trouble free years. But sometimes, bad things will happen. Some common things that can stress out fish include: high ammonia levels caused by excessive waste in the water, low oxygen levels, poor water quality, too many fish in the pond, parasites, water temperature, and chemicals in the water. And remember, good water quality, a good filtration system and always quarantine new fish for several weeks to prevent diseases from infecting your pond in the first place. It is much easier to prevent disease than to treat it and the most important consideration in your pond is good water quality. Spotting a sick fish early makes it easier to treat Spotting disease early gives you your best chance of treating it.

In some cases, you may need to treat the whole pond, while quarantining the sick or diseased fish and treating it away from the pond may be the best course of action. If they get sick with some kind of koi disease they might even die right in the koi pond and infect your other fish. For starters, you have to be able to determine what illness or disease you need to treat. Diverticular disease is a rather common occurrence among the aging Western population. As a koi owner, you will be aware of their normal behavior. And one of the first things a sick koi will do is leave the group and swim on its own. Sometimes they will stop eating or appear to be gasping. For many years doctors believed that eating these types of foods worsened the condition, thus they advised their patients to strictly avoid them. Along with the encouragement of stepping up the fiber intake to prevent this painful condition in the first place, one must also consider that high fiber foods require increased water absorption from the colon.

It was also thought that the high fiber in these types of foods could further damage the delicate intestinal membrane of the large bowel (colon), or lodge along weak protruding points that result in small pouches called diverticula. High in monounsaturated fat and appetite suppressing fiber, vitamins, and minerals, nuts (in moderation) are a part of a heart healthy diet. There are some things, though that you can look out for and treat yourself. University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle reasoned that there seemed to be very little evidence to support this long-standing theory of dietary treatment. Treatment for diseases may not be easy. In fact, low fiber intake may just be the cause of this condition. Eating more fiber rich foods, even after a diverticulitis attack, actually lowered the risk of having another attack or developing further complications. Those that participated in this study, who reported eating nuts at least twice weekly, lowered their risk by 20 percent.

Those who reported eating popcorn regularly, lowered the risk by 28 percent. They are also a great addition in the diet by helping lower the risk of of developing Type 2 diabetes. Koi are also easily affected by stress. Fish can be injured by sharp pool edges and even handling the fish can stress them out. Fish, just like other animals can get sick from viruses, parasites, bacteria, dirty water, bad food and wrong feeding habits. Your fish could get sick and you need to know what to look for and how to treat them. Unlike humans who get sick they cannot tell you where it hurts, so you have to be aware of their behavior and look for any changes that might not be healthy. The consumption of nuts, seeds, and popcorn have long been considered dietary no-noes for those with a painful digestive disorder known as diverticulitis. A good filtration system is probably the most important thing you have to help keep your fish healthy.

I have a good filtration system and check the water quality on a regular basis. Water testing kits, perhaps some rock salt, and some of typical koi medicines should be on hand. Koi normally like to stay with the group. I’ve built a lovely pond and have it stocked with a variety of beautiful koi fish. It is a wonderful feeling when you sit in the shade and watch your pond. The fish seem to impart a feeling of relaxation and serenity that is hard to get anywhere else. These fish are like members of the family. Just like with any other animal, if their behavior changes, it could be an early indicator of illness or injury. And just like your dog, they sometimes require the assistance of a veterinarian or specialist. Does this sound like your situation? During the follow-up, only 801 new cases of the condition emerged in the study group, and only 383 of those developed complications of bleeding. If these little sacs become obstructed or inflamed they can enlarge erupting in pain, fever, and bleeding.
