I have a young quarter size koi angel that has a reddish mass in its anal area. Part of this mass protrudes (looking like a small brush). It has stopped eating. I put it in a half gallon jar with epsom salts and aeration. The red mass is still there and this going into the second day with the epsom salts. I don't think the fish will make it.

If this isn't constipation (which I thought should come clear in 8 hours) the what could it be? My goal is better treat this problem if I should ever run into it again. Sad

Yes, callamanus worms seems to be the best diagnosis. The fish died. I have been to several sites and don't quite understand how it spreads. I guess I will need to do more research. Thanks for replying.
