One of the first considerations that we take into account when we start in the aquarium hobby is that there are at least two basic types of aquariums, marine and "Fresh Water" aquariums.


Many species of aquarium fish come from bodies of water whose proximity to the sea makes it easier for seawater to mix to some extent with continental water, resulting in water with intermediate salinity commonly known as brackish water, in which several species of fish are adapted, such as archer fish, guppies, pangasians, among others.


San-Halita is a high purity salt that is contained by the evaporation of sea water and whose sodium chloride content is 99.96% on average, which means that it is the purest salt that can be economically available to increase the salinity of the water in the aquariums, therefore it does not cloud the water.


San-Halita is recommended as a therapeutic against some benign parasitic diseases caused by opportunistic protozoa, such as trichodiniasis, epistiliassi, among others. Treatment is based on the fact that many of these microorganisms have little tolerance to low or moderate concentrations of salt. 


It can also be used as an invigorating treatment for some species of fish, such as the Japanese in their different varieties after long transfers in which the fish usually arrive exhausted or depressed by stress.


San-Halita should be used with caution since not all species of fish tolerate dissolved salt in water, as is the case with the genera Corydoras and Brochis, to mention some of the most common.


Instructions for use:


Aquarium Salt Auxiliary in Disease Prevention

As a preventive against diseases caused by parasites, fungi and bacteria:

Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of San-Halita for every 40 liters of water, or if you prefer, one gram for every liter.


As a therapeutic for the treatment of ICH: 

Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of San-Halita for every 40 liters of water, combining with Cubrix or Green-Bac and raise the water temperature to 28 or 30ºC


For the treatment of diseases caused by fungi (milkweed):

Add 2 to 4 tablespoons of San-Halita for every 40 liters of water combined with Acrivelt.


For brackish water fish such as Mollys, Escatófagos, Pangasios, etc .:

Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of San-Halita for every 40 liters of water. 


IMPORTANT DO NOT use San-Halita on fish of the genus Corydoras.
