WARNING Salt can be beneficial in a fish only freshwater tank as it can help to keep away potential fungal infections. But it can't be used if freshwater inverts are in the tank. I found this out after nearly 20 of my snails died. so word to the wise.. It should come with a WARNING as it killed my $75.00 investment of snails. I feel horrible that I killed all my snails. Live and Learn the Hard way!!!!
Hi, this salt is very good for gill function and helps enhance treatments when using medications to battle parasites and diseases in your aquarium. Should only be used when needed(in a freshwater aquarium), but a bit of salt after your waterchanges wouldn't hurt at all. Make sure to dissolve in water before adding to aquarium.
This salt is actually about the same if not, cheaper than most kitchen sea salt, rock salt etc. Also, some [Non-Iodized] Kitchen salts contain different caking agents other than iodine to prevent salt from clumping up. This aquarium salt is PURE sea salt with no additives so this is your safest choice.
Salt is the safest natural way to treat first signs of white spot disease also known as ich. In other words this will only be effective in the early stages and minor infections, if your fish is covered in ich then I suggest using medications with the combination of salt for maximum effectiveness.
So, I'm a newbie. My new betta, Andas, was purchased at a 99 cent store, yes, 99 CENT STORE!! It really hurt me to see this Betta in a 3 inch container, so if I could at least save one, even though it's in a 1 gallon tank, I'll do it. I didn't notice at first, but as i researched, my betta was so stressed, had tail at the tips of it's fins, and a bit of fin loss. I didn't use this much, then I started using to more recently, and the holes in Andas fins are gone!! The ends are still torn, but this is a major improvement, also, he hasn't been hiding in the corner anymore for long periods of time; he's swimming more!! My tank is almost done with it's cycle, so this, as well as other things, helps make him feel calmer and breath better (he's also not going up for air as much as before). This is a great price and a great amount!! Maybe I'll add images :)
