I know it's after the fact but the heater failing is why I like to have redundancy on qt or hospital tanks.

With systems that small, a second stick heater wouldn't cost that much. I personally like to use a controller and have a Ranco set up here. It can handle up to a 1000w, as I recall. Stick heaters often have their own controller but might not go down low enough if you're trying to acclimate below 70 degrees. What I do is set the Ranco to the temp I want and set the stick heaters to their lowest setting.

So did you overfeed?

Best of luck. Since Marilyn and Russ have helped you with this koi. Maybe they can help you with the issue. Since they have a better understanding of the hole situation.

Wups... I see this is a month old.

UPDATE?

Kevin, in our current water temps, the filters are just coming back online. It's going to very easy to outpace what your filters can handle. This is also true of the koi. Their immune systems are not up to speed like they will be in another month or two. That is why overfeeding can be a huge strain on them and the filtration.
If you are doing ProformC because you've added new fish, remember not to do salt and elbagin until the end and the ProformC is gone from the system.

Btw, the bulging eyes are indications that the fish is still under the weather. That is why perfect water, not stressing it with overcrowding or too much food are very important.

I think you should s/s to see if ProformC is necessary.

Btw, adding new media usually makes the water cycle a bit. I have had this happen and it usually doesn't take too long but watch for ammonia and nitrite.
