Koi Missing Scales

I have a couple of my Koi with ulcers, I have them in a 200 gallon tank and have been treating them. The larger koi (2 lbs) jumped out and was out of the tank a while. I got him back in and he seems to be doing ok, but lost a few scales. I am feeding them antibiotics in their food, is there anything I can do and should I worry about the missing scales. - Mike

You shouldn't really need to worry about the missing scales, they will grow back. Koi can live without them. Just keep an eye on the damaged areas, make sure they don't get an infection.
