Potassium permanganate is the inorganic chemical compound KMno4,a water soluble salt consisting of equal mole amounts of potassium (K+) and permanganate(MnO4-, officially called manganate (vII) ions. Potassium Permanganate is a strong oxidizing agent. It dissolves in water to give deep purple solutions, evaporation of which gives prismatic purplish-black glistering crystals.
Treating Koi and garden ponds against fish disease; acting against a range of protozoan parasites including Trichodina, Costia and Chilodonella, disinfectant (used in cleaning fish tanks), deodorizer, bleach, dye, tanning, reagent in analytical chemistry, medicine (antiseptic), manufacturing of organic chemicals, purification of water and air, and ceramics.
In addition to being an effective anti-parasite treatment, Potassium Permanganate can also assist with bacterial gill disease and bacterial disease such as skin ulcers. It will also oxidize dissolved organic matter, reducing the biological oxygen demand and improving water quality and clarity
Potassium permanganate is a strong oxidizer and can burn skin, eyes, and other body parts. It will stain you and everything it touches brown. Always use safety protective gear including rubber gloves, goggles and old clothes. A dust mask is advisable to prevent irritation to your respiratory tract.
Potassium permanganate, KMnO 4 , is a chemical oxidizing agent that will react with any organic matter in a pond including algae, bacteria, fish, particulate and dissolved organic, and organic bottom sediments. It has been used in fish ponds to treat common fish pathogens such as gill parasites and external bacterial and fungal infections. Contrary to some reports, potassium permanganate does not add significant amounts of oxygen to water and can actually decrease dissolved oxygen concentrations by killing algae that produce much of the oxygen in ponds.
