Interesting read about local KS fish virus

There is another virus that attacks goldfish and koi. It is caused by the herpes virus. It wiped out several ponds and even showed up in carp at Blue springs lake several years ago. It could have been avoided by quarantining new fish. Both of these are extreme examples of why you should quarantine your new fish. A 5 gallon bucket can serve as quarantine tank. Sterlite plastic tubs are cheap and they will work. You really need to be able to observe your new fish for a while. Sometimes my quarantine tank becomes the fishes new home. Don't be that guy.
