CrystalClear® ParaSalt™ is formulated to 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). Salt is excellent for mucous production when healing from a wound.
ParaSalt™ will also help ward off and remove most common protozoan parasites found in Koi and goldfish such as: Dactylogyrus, Byrodcytulus, Epistylis, Trichodina and Chilodonella. ParaSalt™ can be used in a salt bath for heavy infestations or as a routine treatment to keep parasites from entering the pond environment.
Helps Control Common Parasites
Maintains Healthy Slime Cost
Safe for All Aquatic Life
Dosage Rate Use 8 oz of ParaSalt™ per 100 gallons
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.
Additional Information To figure out how much salt to use to get the desired reading for any given treatment, 1 pound of salt per 100 gallons of pond or aquarium water will achieve a 0.12 saline solution. It takes about 1 and a third cups of salt to equal a pound. While there is not an exact number a person must achieve (some pond keepers use no added salt) a number of 0.12 salinity is a very safe but also effective number for ponds with both fish and plants. Ponds with no plants can tolerate much higher salt contents and so if you have no plants a number of 0.20 salinity would be beneficial. It is recommended to also have a salt meter to monitor salt content if you are going to keep salt water saturation in your pond.
