You can get it from your lfs. Petsmart, Petco or any places like that.

My LFS uses aquarium salt regularly in all their tanks and recommended it to me so i use it normally in my community tank ( 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons ).

My question to neenjar ( sp? ) is about kuhli loaches... I havent gotten them yet but will be in the future. You are stating that salt is bad for these guys? Should i stop adding salt when i do pwc's? Will that be enough if I do like a month or 2 of 15% water changes with no added salt?

Thanks for posting this! :) I got my betta a few months ago. He was gray because the girl who owned him hid him under a bed in a cold room. He had a fungus, ick, velvet, and fin rot. The fungus and the ick are gone, but I still have to get rid of the fin rot and the velvet. He is doing much better. Now I can actually see his colors. He is a purple and blue veiltale. :) his name is lil sano.

Hello thread necromancy..

I would never give baths like this. All the moving around multiple times a day would be stressful, as well as completely unnecessary. Fish can be kept in 1 tsp per gallon aquarium salt very safely with no signs up stress for up to 10 days. Just add it to your normal QT or tank like you would any med.
