My new koi has been in the pond for a week. I wasn't able to QT, as I had to leave town on a family matter. I spoke with a member of our local koi club and they said it would be worse to incorrectly QT ( husband will feed fish etc, but doesn't know about testing, water changes etc), than take a chance in pond, then treat later if needed.

I decided against treating the pond with a broad spectrum med when I added her, after reading advice here. I am hopeful things will continue smoothly, but most definitely want to plan better if I add another koi next summer.
Oh Tula and I thought you were going to QT the koi when you got it :(
It wouldnt have taken you 15 minutes to explain to your husband and all would have been we'll :(
"Slapped wrist", dont do it again ;)
