Koi Open Wound "Q"
I have a koi with an open wound on top. In the past, we've used Melafix to treat such wounds and it would work. This time, it's been 1.5 weeks but this wound doesn't seem to go away. Any suggestions or other medications you would recommend? TIA!

pristine water conditions are always the first line of defense for injury recovery. Looks like it's in an indoor tank... how big is the tank and how big is the fish?300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

Melafix is about as useful as treating cancer with an aspirin. You need to watch that open wound. I would not be surprised if it wasn't an anchor worm, very common in goldfish.
Koi are pond fish as are commons and comets. Chart in my signature.
