The Basic Koi Pond Medicine Chest
So, what should you have around for the Koi? This article lists in numeric format the basic medicine bag to have on hand.

Baytril Dosing Chart
I think Baytril is one of the best drugs against susceptible bacterial infections. Especially since Azactam disappeared. This is an easily printed brief article on using Baytril in Koi.

Formalin and It's Use
Here's a pretty thorough article on the use of Formalin. Formalin is used for treatment of fungus, bacterial infection and parasites. Mostly parasites.

Dosing and injection of Baytril in Koi with susceptible bacterial infections.

Fluke Tabs - Fluke Treatments and Itching Afterward
Why fish might flash and twitch after a treatment with Fluke Tabs.

Shotgun Therapies for Koi and Goldfish
These "shotgun" remedies are a poor substitute for knowledge, a microscope and preventative quarantine of all incoming fish. But, sometimes things happen and you need success fast. The article describes medicines that fit together pretty well to cover MOST of the bases.

Costia and Fluke Treatments Discussed
I'd say these are the two, latest-and-greatest means to handle a Costia infection, and a Fluke infestation. This is a particularly good article to guide retailers and wholesalers through these diseases.

Plant Disinfection
New plants? Did they come from water with fish in? If so, they could carry parasites and eggs. Here's how to disinfect them. It's easy and safe.

Chloramine - T
Chloramine T has been used for bacterial and other infections in Koi and pond fish with some success. It kills flukes, and it is very effective at clearing bacterial infections OUTSIDE the fish. But, it forms powerful sulfuric acid which also burns the fish.

Supaverm - Closantel Mebendazole Fluke Treatment
Universally toxic to goldfish but SMOKIN' on Flukes - SupaVerm is wonderful to clear flukes from Koi ponds. Just don't leave the goldfish in....But what if you wanted the goldfish gone, too?

Formalin - Special Emphasis on Costia Treatment
If you were looking for an article that tied up formalin treatments FOR Costia, this is the article.

Dimilin - Diflubenzuron - Lufenuron - Program For Anchor Worm
Well, actually any crustacean parasite, like Anchor Worm and Argulus. This medicine is commonly available, easy to use and has no side effect on the fish! Wow.
