Is aluminum sulfate the best replacement for rotenone since it's unavailable anymore?

I'm curious. The use of Alum Sulfate would alter the water chemistry of the pond by dropping the alkalinity/hardness as well as the PH. Does Rotenone alter water chemistry as well or just kills the fish?

Yes, but you have to buy a $1,900 barrel, and have an all states permit.

Rotenone kills fish not by removing oxygen from the water, but by inhibiting oxygen transfer and cellular respiration.
