Mix 1/10th of a Teaspoon per 250L of aquarium water. Approx 2mg/L. The Aquarium Water will turn a light purple colour. This colour will remain for 4-6hours.
If colour turns yellow-dark brown the water quality is too poor and you will need to water change and dose again.
After 4-6hours the water will change colour to a yellow/brown colour. Complete a 20-30% water change.
If fish show any signs of stress during treatment, complete a 50% water change immediately.
Potassium permanganate can be used to treat parasites on individual fish. It will eliminate anchor worms, fish lice & costia and can help with flukes, fungus & many types of bacterial infections.
Prepare 8 Litres of aquarium water and add 1/8 teaspoon (0.6g) of crystals. Stir until dissolved & dip fish into this solution for 5 – 10 mins (if the fish looks stressed remove immediately), Dip fish into a bucket of clean aquarium water for a few seconds to rinse and then put the fish back in the aquarium.
Do not treat your aquarium with this level of medication.
