DESCRIPTION

Koi Pharma® Pure Salt is a perfect and All-Natural solution in controlling parasites and protozoa specific infestations that include Dactylogyrus, Bryodcytulus, Epistylis, Trichodina and Chilodonella. When used on a routine basis in keeping the salinity of the pond above 0ppt, it improves the electrolytic intake of Koi and Goldfish which aids to establish and fortify their protective slime coat. This product is also quintessential when battling nitrites in the pond as it will prevent the nitrites entering the Koi's bloodstream and developing Brown Blood Disease when used as directed. All around, Koi Pharma® Pure Salt is a necessary product in your medicine cabinet for your koi and a go-to product when quarantining new or sick fish.
