Oh God. Oh God. Oh God. CORYCATS, can they be in AQ salt?

Okay! So I bought 3 peppered corycats today to go into one of my 10g tanks because they are so CUTE. Well, I decided I was going to put them in my 10g betta tank but then I remembered my betta doesn't like the bubbler.

So I forgot why I wasn't putting them in my 10g tank with my (still small) Angelfish. I forgot that I had AQUARIUM SALT in that tank. 5 tsp worth for the 10g tank. I've already started drip acclimating them!

Will they be okay? Have I screwed up? D:

They'll be fine. AQ salt doesn't hurt anything. It IS for Aquariums.

But I would NOT keep a Betta and them with Anglefish. 1- That is WAYYYYY overstocked, 2 the Bettas and the angles will fight.

No no no, I have two separate tanks! XD One has a betta and one has an angelfish!

Edit: I just know that PLECOS and some other bottom feeders can't handle ANY salt. So I was worried about my dear new corycats.

Ahhhh, okay then. But Anglefish still need 55 gallons.

No, Plecos can handle a little. They just can't do epsom salt I believe. Correct me if i'm wrong.

No! Corys cannot tolerate salt. They are scaleless fish and cannot be in AS. Get them out.

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey

Cories can't handle salt so you really need to move them.

Corydoras do not tolerate salt well...But I don't think 1/2 tsp per gallon would kill them...It might be stressful for them though...I wouldn't recommend keeping them in with the salt...

I would move them to the tank with the betta. It's not absolutely necessary for them to have a bubbler. In fact my cories hate the bubbler we tried more than the betta did.
