Question Salt+IAL=?

I am receiving 2 fish from Thailand tomorrow, and I was wondering, can I put both IAL and AQ salt in?Or would this OD the tank and my new fish???Thanks in advance :)

I would forgo the salt and just use the IAL. Salt should only be used to treat fish in specific circumstances. If you use it as a preventative, it can create salt-resistant strains of disease. That is why there are now salt and heat resistant strains of Ich. Just use the IAL to help him get settled in, and if you see a need for the salt, use it. Don't want to shock the fish too much!
