Pond Care Pond Salt is not a table salt or a rock salt, but an all-natural sea salt used in the pond to improve fish gill function and reduce stress. During periods of stress and disease, healthy gill function (osmoregulation) 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.
Directions for Use
Distribute the Pond Salt evenly around the perimeter of the pond. After one hour, measure the salt level with the Pond Care Salt Level Test Kit.
Ponds Without Plants
Add 2 1/2 cups of Pond Salt for each 100 gallons of pond water. The salt level should be 0.2%.
Ponds With Plants
Add 1 1/4 cups of pond salt for each 100 gallons of pond water. The salt level should be 0.1%.
Short-term salt baths are beneficial to eradicate many external parasite and fungal infections. In a plastic container dissolve 2 1/2 cups of Pond Salt in ten gallons of pond water. Do not use tap water. Carefully place the infected fish in the salt bath for five to ten minutes. Do not leave the fish in the salt bath for more than ten minutes. Return the fish to the pond. Treatment may be repeated after 24 hours.
Important note: Once added to the pond, Pond Salt does not evaporate and is not filtered out. Pond Salt should only be added, as directed, with each water change.
