Koi Medic Salt Tester
Common salt,sodium Chloride(NaC1) is commonly used in the health care and maintenance of fishes especially Koi.
Salt is useful in treating parasites,it will eliminate seven out of nine parasites that are commonly found in a koi pond.
Most fish have an internal salt concentration of 1.0% or 10ppt which is higher than their water enviroment.
Osmosis cause water to transfer from the lower salinity of the pond water into the tissues of the fish.
Addition of salt will lower the osmosis pressure.This reduces the effort of the fish in eliminating the excess water.The saved energy is then availabe for use bt the fish`s own immune system to fight desease.
Salt concentrations between 0.3% to 0.5% (3 to 5ppt)will upset the osmotic balance of some parasites ie,the parasites cells will dehydrate.
Salt concentration of 0.3% are effective at detoxifying nitrite
