Default Potassium Permanganate & Killing Assassins

1. I have a filter that I want to make sure is snail free... Does anyone know how to run this through my Eheim canister. It will not be connected to a tank just a bucket. The aquarium that it serviced is down. Want to hook it up to another aquarium and that tank it serviced had assassins.


2. On a second subject how can I dose a tank that is running and has been for 7-8 years, it was a magnificent goldfish tank and we all know the crap that they can carry. But I want to get as close to pure water as I can...if that mean slightly dosing with PP so be it.. Or if any other suggestions...Hit me with them. I just want to make sure the tank is as disease free as possible!! It to has an Eheim servicing it.

Anyone have any amount or run times for both of these questions?

Regarding the PP I have a 5lb tub of the stuff.. super concentrated powder.

Thank You Karen
