Exclamation My son drank my aquarium water that was treated with aquarium salt

So, I had a jug that was sitting on the counter that I was letting age for my new guy. It had prime and aquarium salt in it. It wasn't old tank water and hadn't been added to the aquarium yet. I just fixed it yesterday and forgot to put it on the floor with all of the rest of the fish stuff. My son mistook it for his water and drank some of it this morning. I am just wondering if the prime and the aquarium salt would hurt him?

There's nothing in Prime that's harmful. And AQ salt is just salt. No harm no foul -- except it probably didn't taste too good.

Dosing Prime into the refill water before aging allows Prime's protection to decay/decrease. Prime works instantaneously. It should be added just before refilling.

What are you aging the water for, if I may ask?

It was to allow the water to reach room temperature and just to give the salt a little extra time to disperse and make absolutely sure that it's fully dissolved before I added it. Kinda like filling the coffee maker up the night before so all you have to do in the morning is push the button.

The messed up part about it, he didn't say anything about it tasting funny until he finished the entire cup full of it. Bless his heart, but he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. I'm just glad that it won't hurt him.

Sounds like something my dad would do. He's been known to eat dog treats when they look like cookies Now I'll be sure to keep any aquarium water away from him too!

Lol. My dad ate our dogs food one time. It was very funny to see his face when he found out. He thought it was something that my mom just threw together. We picked at him for that until he passed. It was hilarious. They dog didn't think so, but we did.
