Head Shaking

What does it mean when a Koi shakes its head violently? -Daniel

It's listening to heavy metal music. Just kidding! Seriously, a Koi shakes its head when it is having health problems. Usually a parasitic infestation. The best thing to do is call a veterinarian so they can come out and take a scraping of the slime coat of the Koi to study under a microscope. Then they will be able to identify what parasite is causing the problems for your Koi. The vet will then prescribe the correct treatment, so you can get rid of the parasites and make your Koi healthy again. It's no fun to have a sick Koi.
