About Epsom Salt

I seach this forum, but I didn't find about Epsom Salt information. Please teach me.

I am from Japan.

Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) it can help with constipation, bloat, edema, swim bladder problems.
It can also help general healing as well....it has antibacterial/fungal properties like aquarium salt (sodium chloride)

Epsom salt is safe to use long term, use with fry and with live plants.

Therapeutic dosage of 1-3tsp/gal

For severe/acute- constipation, swim bladder-3tsp/gal
For chronic long term use 1tsp/gal

Usually you can find Epsom salt in most stores that have a pharmacy dept
Check the label-if it has direction on it for humans to take it orally for constipation...it is safe to use with Betta....

Thank you for comments.

No, we don't have Epsom salt phamacy in Japan.
I went to a few phamacy, but they don't have.
I find them Japanese site.

So, I am not sure how I can buy it for bath or detox for humans.

Thank,

When you say Therapeutic dosage of 1-3tsp/gal, is that added to the water they live in 24/7 or in short baths? Okay to put in with Maracyn 2 antibiotic?
