Carp Pox

What is Carp Pox?
Carp Pox is a herpes virus contracted by koi and goldfish. While it's not dangerous, it's also not curable and very distracting from the beauty of your fish. A wart-like bump with raise up and appear to go away. The warts will usually appear when the water is cold.

Detecting Carp Pox:
The warts exhibited by Carp Pox look like drops of wax. While they can appear anywhere on the fish, they often times come up on the fins.

Treatment:
There really is no treatment for Carp Pox. Do not, however, try to scrape off the warts as it will injure your fish and won't solve the problem.
