CrystalClear ParaSalt is a pond salt formulated to increase koi and goldfish electrolytic intake to help ward off and remove most common protozoan parasites. ParaSalt will increase koi and goldfish electrolytic intake. Electrolytes are critical in building and maintaining a healthy slime coat. Electrolytes such as potassium are essential in wound repair and in times of heavy stress (ie - during water changes or clean-outs). ParaSalt is excellent for mucous production when healing from a wound. ParaSalt can be used in a salt bath application for Dactylogyrus, Byrodctylus, Epistylis, Trichodina and Chilodonella and heavy infestations or as a routine treatment to keep parasites from entering the pond environment. For salt baths add 16 oz of ParaSalt for every 5 gallons of water in an isolated warm bath or quarantine tank. For routine applications, apply 8oz of ParaSalt for every 100 gallons on pond water once a month and after a water change, clean out or during a seasonal change.
Routine Application Rate
Apply ParaSalt once a month at the prescribed rates above and after a water change, clean-out or during a seasonal change. Most pond fish stress during these times and need the electrolytes to assist in repairing their slime coating.
Persistent Problem Application Rate
For salt baths, add 16 oz of ParaSalt for every 5 gallons of water in an isolated bath or quarantine tank. Placed infected fish in an aerated (use an air stone) bath for 5-10 minutes or until fish begins to turn over. Remove fish immediately if fish shows any signs of stress. After bath, immediately remove fish to a quarantine tank for 30 minutes and monitor fish closely. After 30 minutes the fish can be placed back into the pond. Make sure to acclimate the fish back into the pond water slowly by floating it in a bag of pond water in the pond so it can regulate its temperature and avoid shock.
For Best Results
Do not over apply ParaSalt and follow directions thoroughly for maximum affect. If you are unsure of the bath application please consult your local CrystalClear® pond professional.
