Copper sulfate is used as a herbicide for control of invasive aquatic plants and the roots of plants near pipes containing water. It is also used in swimming pools as an algaecide. A dilute solution of copper sulfate is used to treat aquarium fish for parasitic infections, and is also used to remove snails from aquariums. Copper ions are highly toxic to fish, care must be taken with the dosage. Most species of algae can be controlled with very low concentrations of copper sulfate. Copper sulfate inhibits growth of bacteria such as E. coli.
