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.

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.
