Terms of use of salt solution for the treatment of fish

  1. It is impossible to carry out treatment using iodized salt and salt with additives.
  2. Increase the temperature of the water in the tank to 28-30 degrees Celsius, gradually, 2-3 days before the start of treatment. Include a constant aeration (consider also the physiological features of the fish).
  3. Many infectious bacteria die in salt solution 4-5 percent, but the fish can not withstand this concentration of the solution, even a few minutes. Salt procedures should be carried out in liquids with a salt concentration of 1.5-2%, 10-30 minutes.


  • The temperature of the water in the treatment bath should coincide with the water in the aquarium.
  • Treatment should be carried out in infused water. Do not take cold tap water. If the bath with salt needs to be done urgently, heat 10 liters of water and cool it to aquarium water temperature using a water thermometer for reconciliation. Dissolve 2 teaspoons of salt in 10 liters of water, install an aerator in the container. 20 minutes after these manipulations, the sick fish can be started.
  • Do not run all the aquarium fish into the treatment bath at once. Choose a few sick fish and treat them with saline. Pay attention to the behavior, the state of pets in the water. If they go up, lie on their side, cannot swim down, then the salt concentration is too high. Stop the procedure and return the fish to the pit.
  • Gradually increase the concentration of the product in the water at the initial stage of treatment, and reduce it as the pet recovers.
  • Treat the aquarium fish with salt for 7 days-1 month depending on the disease and its course.

    How to treat semolina in fish :: treatment of aquarium fish from semolina salt :: Treatment

    Ichthyophthyriosis, or semolina, most often affects fish for inexperienced aquarists. After all, it is enough to run one infected individual to the rest of the inhabitants of your aquatic world, without keeping it after the purchase, the allotted time in quarantine, and it is likely that in a few days the ciliates will flood the aquarium.

    This is manifested by rashes in the form of semolina, fish rub against stones, on the ground, stop eating and die. If time to carry out treatment, they can still be saved.

    • – salt;
    • – drugs against ichthyophthiriosis;
    • – activated carbon filter.

    1. To effectively combat decoy, familiarize yourself with the development cycles. Unicellular ciliates (Ichthyophthirius multifiliis) is a parasite that has an ovoid body as small as 0.5-1 mm. His life cycle is 12-16 days.

    Adults, being on plants, soil, aquarium equipment, are covered with a gelatinous shell, creating a cyst. Inside it is divided several times, then the daughter cells (“roaches”) search for the victim for three days. In case of contact with the fish, they penetrate the epithelium, create a cavity and parasitize for several days.

    Then they fall away from the victim, and the cycle repeats. Those ichthyophthiriuses who did not find fish perish.

    2. If you have a few fish, then deposit them in a container without algae and soil. Since the parasites are still in their body, then add salt to the water at the rate of 1 tbsp. 10 liters of water. To do this, pour the right amount of salt with a small amount of warm water, wait until it is completely dissolved and pour it into the aquarium.

    In this procedure, remember that not all types of aquarium fish are well tolerated for a long time in salt water. For example, barbs, some catfish, tetras, labyrinths and others.

    3. In salt water, infusorians outside the body of the fish quickly die, but for greater reliability it is better to change the capacity after 12 hours. After another half a day, transplant the fish into another water again. With this method, you can not even add salt or other drugs.

    Since the parasite in the body of the fish can be only a few days, then gradually, within 5-10 days, the infusoria will all die.

    4. After you have planted the fish, in the aquarium, raise the temperature to 32-34 degrees and stand in this mode for a little more than three days. During this time, all the “strollers” will die.

    5. You can treat the fish from the semolina and in the aquarium itself, especially if you have it big and it is just difficult to remove all its inhabitants. In this case, you can also use the salt, but it is better to buy a special tool, for example, Faunomor, Super Ick Cure, Ichthyofor, Malachite Green. Dilute the preparation according to the instructions in the package.

    If repeated processing is required, then spend it.

    6. After some drugs, water can be stained, for example, after applying malachite green – in a greenish color. Usually it doesn’t bother the fish; after a course of treatment, lighten the water with an activated carbon filter.

    It should be remembered that only those parasites that are outside the body of fish perish from drugs.
    Sick fish acquire immunity against ichtiftirioza (semolina). But they can be carriers of the parasite, that is, the signs of semolina will not manifest themselves, and the ciliates themselves will long remain on the body and gills of the fish and, under favorable conditions, will cause a new outbreak of the disease.

    Do not raise the temperature of the water very much, some types of causative agent of semolina from this only develop faster.
