    Shabumkin looks likes that, it's looking really good and still eating. I took a sample to my local garden centre in Aberdeen which said that the ammonia was high and do a 50% water change, which I have done a change. I have put some F-M-G Mixture treatment

    Hmphh...I don't know a lot, but that does not look like something ammonia would cause or a 50% water change would cure.

    Wait a bit until some of the other more experienced ponders see this and reply.

    Lots of questions for you first:

    Is that a dead fish? And the shubunkin is still alive in the pond? How many fish? How big of a pond? What kind of filtration on the pond? How old is the pond?

    Do you know what the numeric reading on the Ammonia test results was?
    Ammonia is a possible cause. If it is then either you have too many fish, not enough biofiltration or a combination of the two.
