Pond General Water Conditioners
Most general water conditioners will eliminate three of the most toxic chemicals commonly found in water: ammonia, chloramines, and chlorine. Salt will replace electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, and chloride, which are essential for the uptake of oxygen that fish lose in times of stress. Pond salt will also keep fish healthy by improving gill function, reduces stress and speeds recovery from disease. Salt primarily works by acting as a slight irritant to the surface of the fish, which will encourage it to produce more of its protective slime coat.
