Basic Copper Chloride, also known as blue vitriol and stone gallbladder, is a transparent dark blue crystal or powder, soluble in water, and its solution is weakly acidic. It is a commonly used medicine in fish disease prevention and treatment. It can treat fish's protoparasitic diseases, such as ectoparasitic flagellates, ciliates, flukes, and Chinese fish fleas. Since copper sulfate is a heavy metal salt, the following points should be noted during its use:
- The ability of copper sulfate to kill pathogens varies with the changes in the water environment. Generally speaking, its toxicity increases with the increase of temperature, and decreases with the increase of pH, the increase of organic matter and the presence of salt. Therefore, the dosage should be flexibly controlled according to the specific conditions of the water environment.
- Copper Acetate Manufacturersbelieves that the safe concentration range of copper sulfate is relatively small. In general use, the copper sulfate with a concentration of 0.5 ppm to 0.7 ppm is poured into the whole pool or the copper sulfate with a concentration of 8 ppm is immersed in a bath for 20 minutes to 30 minutes. Therefore, it is necessary to accurately measure the volume of aquaculture water and calculate the amount of medicine used when using it.
