    Badly injured koi

    This koi is still young, and he was with other koi but I noticed he was acting sluggish so I took him out only to find that he may have been attacked by something. I'm worried if he'll be able to recover. His wound is terrible and I see fungus on his wound and is exposing his flesh in some places. I'm posting a picture. Any help is appreciated. I'm more worried about healing him than what caused it at this point.

    I'm pretty sure I dont, if anything it was a heron of some sort because of the reservoir near the house, but I could care less about it now since that can be easily fixed. I've got him in a small tank with some salt for the meantime. Dont know what to do now since all the shops outside are closed and I'm not even sure if, being this injured, I can still nurse him back to health or not.

    No, he is not a new arrival. He was born there... That aside, can someone please tell me how to go about treating him and not about how it happened?

    Have any fungus meds to give him? I'd start that. I had a 4in goldfish that got most of it's scales, fins, tail chewed off and he is doing great now. Clean water and time.
