What is the difference between pond salt and aquarium salt ? It seems to be the same thing. Can it be used in my freshwater aquariums? If not why ?
Answer by ChewyFeb 08, 2021
Aquarium salt and Pond salt are the same thing. They can be used interchangeably. This salt is formulated for freshwater pond environments. For freshwater aquariums, the API Freshwater Aquarium Salt is recommended.

I have a koi pond that is approx 10k sqft. Do you sell this salt in larger quantities?
Answer by ChewyApr 14, 2021
This pond salt is available in a 4.4 lb carton that treats up to 550 gallons of pond water and a 9.6 lb bottle that treats up to 1200 gallons of pond water. Varieties are available just below the price of the product.

Necessary for healthy koi

Title says it all. Prevents disease and microscopic critters. Good for my fish. If you have never used this product follow the directions so you do not overdose.

Helps keep a healthy pond

When I first opened my fish pond I had problems with algae and sometimes disease. Since using this with every water change (3/4 water removal) I have had clear water and healthy fish. I have a pump, but only need to change the filter every other month or so. We have a canopy over the pond to keep the temperature from getting too hot and that, combined with the salt has cut down greatly on algae.

Pond Salt for Conditioning

This product is indispensable for maintaining an healthy pond. We have a 400 gallon pond with cascades in an interior atrium garden that has been stocked with fishes and running since 2000. With each water change, besides a dechlorinator, we add the pond salt and also occasionally add some pond salt to keep the fishes healthy. Chewey DID pack three large and heavy jars without any packing material, loose in a box that was way too large for the contents, but by a miracle, it arrived with them banging around but undamaged.

Highly recommend

I have used this in my pond for about 8 years. We have 8 goldfish in our outdoor pond and they love it. Its like a spa to them. Never have i lost a fish nor have any of them had parasites, ick, or bacterial infections. I credit this product to that. Just remember the salt is not filtered out so dont overdose. Every time i do a partial water change i add more or if we have a heavy rainfall here in Ohio, the pond will overflow so ill add more then.

Spa bath for your fish

I always add pond salt after a water exchange in my pond. The koi love it. It aids in healthy gill function. Even fresh water fish need a little salt in their life.

Can't beat API products

Pond salt, barley straw and filtration in the proper balance will keep your pond gin clear. Always use API and finding it at Chewy.com makes it even better.
