Epsom Salt

I have a 10 gallon tank with seven females in it. Two (Ritz and Rakki) I believe have internal parasites. Their poop was clearish/white. They still have appetites.

I want to seperate them from the others, but I don't have a heater for the ISO tank.

My thoughts are that if the others have been in contact with internal parasites, then I should treat them all together. However, will epsom salt hurt the fish that might not need it? (I haven't seen the others poop, but they are not bloated so they have to be...)

Currently I'm treating my sorority for fin rot. I do understand that you cannot use AQ salt and epsom salt at the same time. Therefore afterwards, depending on the answers, I will start using epsom salts.

The final question for this post- What are the directions for epsom salt?

Thank you!

I think it would be a good idea treat them all. I'm not to sure on how much to put in though.
