you can only get rid of shimmies by scraping them,they cannot be cured as such.Shimmies are not black marks on the scales but on the skin ,should be done by an expert.shimmies are often caused by poor water quality,hope this sheds a little light on the subject ???

thanks for that brettkoi, you mention water quality, so it is not a pigment that the fish has.when you say on the skin its not just the case of pulling the scale out. I was told by a west wales koi dealer to use sudo nappy cream (then again he's welsh aswell) haha.

i thought they used that cream for something else in wales lol ;D ive never heared of it but i would definately check it out before applying...contact a koi club,people that show koi will be used to removing shimmies if your not showing it,i would leave well alone ,but let me know what you do and if it works.
