Sometimes, an item is NOT on Amazon and I don't get a percentage and it's still linked on this site. After all, I'm not a COMPLETE mercenary bastard LOL

Fritz Aquatics Mardel Clout 100 Count Jar

CLOUT. Mardel, Fritz Industries.
Safe for most if not all species of fish, okay for plants, great for most if not all microscopic parasites. Best in Show for your Ecosystem Ponds and works fine in the Koi museum multistage ponds. There are some less-common organisms that will elude this such as Hexamita and a bunch of crap Koi seldom suffer. But as a through-the-door-dump-it-in first guess, this is your baby. One tablet per ten gallons of water dissolved in a bucket of water, distributed around the pond as evenly as possible. Discontinue UV but keep the filter and AERATION on. Let it go. No water changes and bypass nothing. Repeat in 48 hours. (Basically skip a day and repeat.) That’s it. For more stubborn parasitic infections, go with Malachite/Formalin mixes.

When you make your purchases via these links you are supporting the work of Dr. Erik Johnson. A small percentage of your purchase(s) is returned to Dr. Johnson sort of like a Discover card. It doesn't come out of YOUR purchase price. You won't pay a cent more. Amazon kicks the pennies back as a finder's fee for lead-generation. But it adds up and it's very appreciated. So, thank you.

But it works another way. Almost nothing you find on the site is untested. Basically I've bought everything I recommend here. From Amazon. And so you'll see my review on Amazon, verification that I did purchase it there, and then the link to the item. And when someone needs my help and I refer for say, Mardel Clout, the link will be to my Affiliate link. So it's mutually beneficial.
