Use Armor Rx when you see any damage to the scales or “slime coat” of your koi or pond fish.
Note: The “slime coat” on your koi and pond fish is like a “Suit of Armor” it protects your fish from all the deadly bacteria in your pond water from entering your fish’s body. When the “slime coat” becomes damaged your fish are at risk for serious koi ulcers, body sores and other bacterial infections.
Causes of scale and “slime coat” damage:
- Flashing: “rubbing on the rocks and sides of your pond”
- Netting: everytime you net or handle your fish you are causing damage to their “slime coat”
- When your fish are chasing during breeding activity they brush against the rocks and sides of your pond causing “slime coat damage
- When you’re shipping koi or pond fish use Armor Rx in the shipping bags.
