    Hello and welcome!

    Please tell us some more information about your pond. How is this fish acting and how long has this been there?
    • Size of your pond
    • Number and size of fish
    • Type of filtration
    • How long has this pond been up and running
    • Have you recently added new fish
    • Do you test your water and if so, what are the test results

    I wouldn't think anchor worm because I don't see a clearly defined attachment site. The anchor worm usually leaves a pretty obvious red/bleeding wound where it attached to the fish. Perhaps another type of worm though??

    Looks like the site of a scale that's all.
    The koi remember is a varient of the doitsu it may not have scales but it's still a doitsu.
    So nothing to panic about
