Question Aquarium salt?

I got Aquarium salt, stress coat (will help with his stress) and stress zyme(which would help the cycle, therfore less stress for the fish) today, as well as Myzazin for Axl's fungus >.< is it ok for all these to be in the tank at once? would it help him get over and heal from the fungus quicker?

How much A. salt for a 3 gallon?

Hello,
I'm not really sure about the combination you mentioned above, sorry, but as for the aquarium salt, I have the brand API and its directions call for: 1/2 tsp per gallon (general tonic and stress reducer) or 1 tbsp per 5 gallons (disease treatment). So whether you want to use it as a stress reducer and preventative or disease treatment is up to you, just tailor it to your specific needs. I hope that helps

I'm not really sure what you mean...for instance since your tank is 3 gallons, you would add 1.5 tsps of aq salt if you're using it as a stress reducer or general preventative. If you want to use it as a means of treating disease, I would add around 1/2 tbsp or just a little more

Of course you would only add that with each water change. Aquarium salt does not filter out or it does not evaporate so only add with each water change. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear
