Serious question for the confused!!!

So I know theres a difference between epsom and Aquarium salt but can someone tell me what each treat?
I have done epsom salt bathes for constipation but thats really it.. Not paying attention the other night bought a bag of aquarium salt and not epsom salt. Now Im not sure what to do with it!

Epsom salt is used for internal problems like bloat and swim bladder. And can be used longer term.
Aquarium salt is used for external wounds and the prevention of infection on tail rot and such. Should only be used for 10 days at a time with a week in between because bettas are freshwater. :)
Hope this helps.
eta- with the epsom salt, you can hang on to it since it never expires. Plus, you can add it to a bath for YOU and relax (It relaxes muscles and soothes skin)
