      Coolwon, you will say that I am a bit slow and you are absolutely right but in the salinity table I cannot find the section for just salt baths, what I want to know is for salt baths, what amount of salt in kilos should I add every 10 liters , and for how many minutes the koi should be submerged...

      Look in the blue section under "Why use salt?"

      Baths (1-5 minutes) are generally around 3.0 percent.

      Hey Steve, this calculator is awesome, that is to say that to achieve a concentration of 3% in 10 liters I need 300 grams of non-iodized coarse salt, is that correct?

      Not at all!

      I drew your attention to all the other weights and measures that will help you improve your fish keeping.

      With happier, healthier fish.

      I believe iodized salt is a no no in the fish keeping world.

      When I am at the brick wall, I turn to GOOGLE.

      Thousands before you have asked the same questions.

      I take a lot of it with a PINCH OF SALT.

      CHEERS.

      You can also use non-iodized table salt. It dissolves much easier than coarse salt.

      What is the difference between iodized salt and coarse salt?

      I know where I shop all the coarse salt they carry is non ionized, so no iodine in it. There's
      also rock salt that is coarse and non ionized but it isn't the same standard of cleanliness and usually
      used for making ice cream and such. It probably would work fine for the pond too.

      I would add too that if you're looking for economical, the kind advertised for water softeners is by
      far the cheapest. Check to be sure it doesn't have additives but no iodine and coarse :
