    Pond HealthGuard™ is an effective disinfectant to promote the control of parasitic, bacterial, and viral infestations of fish and plants in ornamental ponds. Pond HealthGuard™ contains no malachite green (or other dye based disinfectants) that can discolor the water or quaternary disinfectants that foam. Used as directed Pond HealthGuard™ is safe for fish, plants, and the biological filter.


    Pond HealthGuard™ is safe for most fish under most circumstances. Since use of any treatment is not without risk, it should not be used carelessly. For prophylactic purpose, use 1⁄4 dose. If many fish are to be treated, first check for susceptibility to stress with a few fish. If fish show stress (surface breathing or other abnormal behavior), do not redose. If signs of stress are acute, promptly initiate water replacement to dilute product. If uncertain about susceptibility to stress, use 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 dose and proceed with caution. Pond HealthGuard™ should not be used in conjunction with other treatments. Do not use if copper or zinc are present. Do not use if Demalin has ever been used (a 100% water change must be done to remove all traces of Demalin). Do not use if oxygen levels are depressed or water exceeds 30 °C (86 °F). gill stress with some species.

    In most ponds, this product does not persist longer than 24 hours, but may in exceptionally clean water. In such cases, redosing should be delayed. If added to hazy water there may be oxygen depletion. In such situations, be prepared to replace water with oxygenated water. Death or rapid release of gill flukes may cause


    DIRECTIONS: Use 125 mL (half a cup) per 1000 L (250 gallons) daily until conditions improve. Dispense product widely to avoid localized overdose. Use 125 mL (half a cup) per 2000 L (500 gallons) daily for about a week thereafter. To calculate volume, multiply average length by average width by average depth. To obtain Liters measure in meters and multiply by 1000; to obtain gallons measure in feet and multiply by 7.5. To obtain average dimensions of irregular shaped ponds (e.g., kidney), take as many measurements as practical to avoid overestimation and consequent possible overdose. Account for water displacement by potted plants, rocks, or other decorative materials.
