Salt is a superb supportive treatment when treating koi for a wide variety of ailments, can be used as a dip and can be used to kill parasites and bacteria at high strength. Helps lessen the burden on the koi’s osmoregulatory system in other words helps keep the koi’s fluid bodily level in balance. Cannot be used with all chemicals, notably potassium and chloramine T at high strength.
Max recommended dosage with these chemicals is 1/2 ounce per gallon (0.33%)
Dosage for use as a general supportive treatment and tonic is 1/2 ounce per gallon (0.33%).
As a supportive when treating bacterial infection with other treatments, such as Acriflavine 3/4 ounce per gallon (0.50%).
As a dip salt can be used at 4 ounces per gallon (2.64%) for 10 - 15 minutes or until the koi shows signs of distress, whichever is the shorter.
We strongly recommend using the koi medic salt pen to measure the % of the salt solution in your tanks, its very difficult to sustain the right % once you have put the salt in due to water changes etc.
