Ecotoxicity Values

LC50 Poecilia reticulata (guppy) 2134 mg/L for 14 days; semistatic, 22 deg C
LC50 Pimephales promelas (fathead minnow, age 29 days) 2560 mg/L/96 hr; flow-through, 24.8 deg C, pH 7.76, dissolved oxygen 7.1 mg/L, hardness 45.1 mg/L CaCO3, alkalinity 41.5 mg/L CaCO3
EC50 Pimephales promelas (fathead minnow, age 29 days) 2260 mg/L/96 hr; flow-through, 24.8 deg C, pH 7.76, dissolved oxygen 7.1 mg/L, hardness 45.1 mg/L CaCO3, alkalinity 41.5 mg/L CaCO3; Effect: Affected fish lost schooling behavior and swam in a corkscrew/spiral pattern near the tank surface. They were underreactive to external stimuli, had increased respiration, were darkly colored, and lost equilibrium prior to death.
