HI fish people,

I noticed one of my koI (who jumped out of the water about a week ago) developed a black spot kinda under his skin near the tail, and the scales around the area got a little fuzzy. What I mean by that is the scales are not shiny and smooth anymore and gotten kinda like frosted glass and the skin underneath appears to be pink. Is this a bacterial infection? Also, he seems to have ich on the head.

Attached are the pictures I took of him in the hospital tank. I tried to get better pictures but these are all I could manage. Please help me, thank you guy so much.

Yes and paraguard should have handled that.

I don’t have a lotta experience with koi, does carp lice appear to be under the scales covered by almost frosted skin? I know the pic is pretty bad but I just can’t get a good shot. The fish is eating normally and behaving pretty calm.I upped the temperature today and he’s pooping like a champ...
