Why use pond salts?
Whilst pond fish are not found in salt water, there are many positives for having background levels in a garden pond. Some of the main reasons are listed below:
1. Low levels of salt in ponds are recommended for the uptake of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide (C02) across the gills. Stress can result in a reduction of these electrolytes and the fishes ability to get rid of C02 and ammonium (NH4).
2. Salt will also help to block nitrite up take through the gills in situations where the filter has failed, over feeding has occurred or in new ponds.
