Potassium Permanganate is a great oxidizer which kills off most unwanted organisms and/or diseases. We often bath our Koi fish individually in Potassium Permanganate, depending on what treatment is needed.
Further studies have also suggested that regularly oxidizing your pond does carry certain benefits (over and above it’s obvious function to remove unwanted bacteria). Given Potassium Permanganate essentially dissolves all the additional organic content in your pond water, it can greatly improve a ponds filtration.
Allowing the bacteria to concentrate on ammonia and nitrate as appose to also dealing with a whole host of non-essential organic compounds.
