What It's Good At:
Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) kills 99.9% of exposed pathogenic bacteria, kills most ciliate parasites, most fluke parasitisms, fungal infections and potassium permanganate oxidizes organics in the water, leaving it cleaner and fresher than before treatment.
Note: You will get explicit written recommendations and guidelines on the proper use of Potassium permanganate with every order. Here are some guidelines:
For flukes you should treat every third or fourth day for three or four treatments.
For ciliate parasites you should treat every day for five treatments.
Powerful oxidizer clears many ciliated protozoans, flukes, fungi and bacterial infections. Dosage and interval are critical. Use caution and dose carefully, avoid contact with skin, eyes or mucous membranes. Bypass filter and increase aeration and circulation. Can be neutralized with dechlorinator or hydrogen peroxide. Full details with product.
You should probably know:
The presence of large amounts of organic debris, uneaten food, dead fish, leaves, dead plants will cause the potassium to spend it's energy on oxidizing the organics, not on the parasites or ulcers.
The presence of dechlorinator in the water will inactivate the treatment. (Latency 2 days)
The presence of Hydrogen peroxide will inactivate treatment. (Latency 3 days)
Potassium can kill a lot of algae, increasing oxygen demand, especially in warm water over eighty degrees.
