Copper Sulphate pentahydrate, is a fungicide.a mixture of copper sulfate and ammonium carbonate, used in horticulture to prevent damping off in seedlings. Its use as a herbicide is not agricultural, but instead to control invasive aquatic plants and the roots of plants that may be situated near pipes containing water. It is used in swimming pools as an algicide. A dilute solution of copper sulfate is used to treat aquarium fishes for parasitic infections, and is also used to remove snails from aquariums. Copper ions are highly toxic to fish, however.
