Mircobe-Lift® Pond Salt Crystals
Pond salt has been termed “The Koi Wonder Drug” and is a proven staple in the health care and maintenance of Koi. Pond salt maintained at a 0.2% level in the pond will reduce fish stress, enhance their slime coat and will improve gill function. During periods of stress and disease, healthy gill function is disturbed. This can cause a loss of electrolytes, leading to serious health problems for fish. Pond salt provides the essential electrolytes fish need to survive. In addition, a salt solution will do a great job at controlling certain protozoan parasites, such as Trichodina, Ich and Chilodonella. A >0.2% salt level may threaten some more tender aquatic plants.
