AquaCare Tonic Salt

AquaCare Tonic Salt

AquaCare Tonic Salt is a unique physiological salt formula which helps freshwater fish maintain a constant internal salt/fluid balance. This is particularly useful when fish are stressed or sick because the salt/fluid balance can be negatively affected threatening the fishes' welfare. Tonic Salt helps stabilise pH water conditions and reduce the toxicity of nitrite. 

Tonic Salt is one of the the fishkeepers most versatile water treatments. It can be used in 3 main ways: 

  1. General aquarium tonic and mild pH buffer. Maintaining a concentration of 0.1% constantly will help your fishes' immune system fight disease. This level also guards against damaging pH swings by helping to keep it stable at an ideal pH for most freshwater fish species. Add 1g per litre of aquarium water. 
  2. Help minimise the effects of stress on fish. Fish are sometimes subject to severe stress, eg. during handling, moving and when the aquarium is newly set up; making them more susceptible to disease. 0.3% alleviates the dangerous stress and reduces the effect of toxic waste products like nitrite. Add 3g per litre of aquarium water for a 0.3% concentration. 
  3. Supprt when treating disease. When treating some diseases (eg. ulcers and dropsy) with medications it is advisable to support the treatment with Tonic Salt at 0.9% for the treatment duration. Add gradually over 3 to 4 days. This level should be maintained for a maximum of 2 weeks otherwise damage to plants can occur. Add 9g per litre for a 0.9% concentration.

Tonic salt is available in 3 different sizes: 

  • Small (250g), which treats up to 250 litres/55 gallons
  • Medium (500g), which treats up to 500 litres/110 gallons
  • Large (1250g), which treats up to 1250 litres/275 gallons
