pdv Pond Salt

NOTE - Salt @ 1ounce per gallon = 28.35gm (See table below to calculate how much you need)

Pond Salt is a superb supportive treatment when treating fish for a wide variety of ailments - Many years ago, it was the only treatment used.

It can be used as a dip and can be used to kill parasites and bacteria at high strength. Helps lessen the burden on the koi’s osmoregulatory system in other words helps keep the fish’s fluid bodily level in balance.

Pond Salt cannot be used with some chemicals, notably potassium, chloramine T at high strength and formalin.

- Dosage for use as a general supportive treatment and tonic is 1/2 ounce per gallon (0.16%).

- As a supportive when treating bacterial infection with other treatments, such as Acriflavine 1.5 ounce per gallon (0.50%).

- As a dip salt can be used at 3 ounces per gallon (1%) for 5 - 10 minutes or until the koi shows signs of distress, whichever is the shorter.

We always recommend that Salt Dips are carried out adjacent to the pond so that a distressed fish can be quickly transferred back to the pond.

Finally, we strongly recommend using a Koi Medic Digital Salt Tester, to measure the % of the salt solution in your tank or pond, as its very difficult to sustain the right % once you have put the salt in due to water changes etc.


PLEASE NOTE:  The Chart Below Calculates The Amount Of Salt Required At 1oz Per Gallon - So, if you are only doing a supportive or tonic treatment you will require half the dosage shown and if you are doing a salt dip you will need to treble the dosage etc.....
