Parasite Killed By Salt

Costia, Chilodinella, Episylis, Ichthyopthirius, Trichodina and Tetrahymena are some of the more common parasites that are killed by salt.

Directions For Use:

We recommend using salt only when needed, or when your fish are vulnerable. Salt is best used if you have a parasite outbreak or during the winter or early spring when koi and goldfish are vulnerable parasites. However some enthusiasts keep a low level of salt in their ponds continuously.

For Parasite Control:

  1. Use 3 lbs of salt for every 100 gallons of water in your pond. For example. if you have a 1500 gallon pond, you would add 45 lbs of salt.
  2. Dissolve required amount of salt in a bucket of warm water, or distribute evenly around the pond. It can also be added to a waterfall or stream where the water pools.
  3. After about 1 hour, check the salinity with salinity meter. We have 2 salinity meters / salt testers available - Koi Medic Salinity Tester and Economy Salinity Tester. The slat concentration should be 0.3% or slightly above to effectively kill most parasites.
