My tosai arrived today after being lost at the airport and I was given a box with saltwater tropical (tangs, shrimp, etc) lol. About 3 hours looking for the box..........found it still out on the tarmac.

everyone is in QT and seem a little stressed but OK

Marilyn,
I'm glad too. They said the only reason I got them was that I was polite and patient- NOT. They made three extra searches that they said they wouldn't normally do. I was used to the PSKOI label, so wasn't real convinced the first box was mine. Imagine my surprise in pulling out a blue tang and a shrimp lol.

If you look in the video, the SU looks to have a brown spot near the tail. Do you think that is anything to be concerned about?? bruise infection, etc???

thanks to you & Russ!

It's hard for me to see in the video but it's not unusual for koi to have a little scale trauma, for lack of a better word, happen during shipping. Brown isn't a color that makes me jump to attention and take action. If it were red or raised, then I would intervene. I think you're at the wait and see zone.
Btw, if it does look to be reddening, I would try treating topically. A little iodine at the front end can do a lot of good.

Thanks, I'll keep an eye on it. They are looking a little more active today and no redness or anything else on the SU
