Potassium permanganate from Kusuri is another well-liked powdered chemical for use in a variety of situations. a reliable cleaner for nets and ponds. Excellent for getting rid of parasites like Trichodina and Costia.
It can be used at temperatures as low as 10°C (50°F), but will discolour water for up to 7 days.
Potassium permanganate depletes pond water's oxygen content at higher temperatures, therefore it's best to keep an air stone running and, if possible, add more air.
After a course of Kusuri potassium permanganate has oxidised from pink to brown, the discoloration in the pond water can be removed as well as the oxygen levels in the water by using Kusuri Hydrogen Peroxide 6%.
