Pond fish actively maintain a natural balance of electrolytes in their body fluids. Electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, chloride, calcium and magnesium are removed from the water by chloride cells located in the gills. These electrolytes are essential for the uptake of oxygen and release of carbon dioxide and ammonium across gill membranes. The lack of electrolytes can cause health problems in pond fish. Pond Care POND SALT is an all-natural salt, providing essential electrolytes fish need to survive. POND SALT is not just a table salt (sodium chloride). It is made from evaporated seawater.

How POND SALT helps improve gill function to reduce stress…

During periods of disease and stress, healthy gill function is disturbed. This can lead to the loss of electrolytes through the gills, called osmotic shock. Osmotic shock reduces the intake of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide and ammonium from the gills. POND SALT reduces the risk of osmotic shock by replenishing natural electrolytes fish need.

How POND SALT reduces nitrite toxicity…

Overcrowding and overfeeding can lead to elevated nitrite levels, especially in newly set-up ponds. The nitrite ion N02- enters the gills and prevents the blood from carrying oxygen, resulting in nitrite toxicity or by blocking the uptake of nitrite ions (methemoglobinemia). POND SALT will reduce the toxic effect of nitrite.

Provide essential electrolytes fish need to survive with an all-natural salt, made from evaporated sea water. Improves gill function, protects against nitrite toxicity & reduces stress by helping to maintain a natural balance of electrolytes in the body fluids of pond fish. Can safely be used with all PondCare® water conditioners, filtration materials, medications & fish foods. Monitor salt levels with a PondCare Salt Level Test Kit.
