my mom got box of Doc Wellfish's aquarium salt. says it reduces stress and adds electrolytes+ improves gill function. On the directions says does not evaporate and is not filtered out. just curious can I use it, my fish aren't sick but it wouldn't hurt? but it's salt, and p's arent saltwater fish, well hell!! : I dont know, what do you guys think.

In fact, aquarium salt is not harmfull and you can use it as medication, still it's not recommended daily since it can make bacteria resistant!

theres another post in this section that mentions that about salt.
yeah you can use aquarium salts..but never use marine salt cause it contains buffers that can effect your fish

I forgot to mention, don't add it in all at once. I take a clean cup and dissolve about a fith of the total salt you want in the aquarium water. Then I add that saltwater in during the day (1/2 in the morning, 1/2 at night). Do that for the next five days so your fish has time to acclimate to the new conditions.
