StressCoat&Aquarium Salt

My betta has fin rot, and I heard you use aquarium salt and stresscoat to cure it..

What is the dosage for both?
Can you mix the aquarium salt & stresscoat with my Nutrafin water conditioner?
How many water changes should I make?

Thanks x

Yes you can use both, with your water conditioner. The dosage for Stress Coat should be on the bottle, and the dosage for aquarium salt is 2 tsp. per gallon, with daily 100% water changes to avoid salt buildup, for a maximum of 10 days.

StressCoat+ is actually a water conditioner in itself so you can swap to it rather than continue the use of your other conditioner (might save you some money). The reason StressCoat+ is recommended for unwell or injured fish is because it contains aloe which helps with slime coat production, the repair of damaged tissue and it is also believed in some circles to act as a stress reliever.

You don't have to use StressCoat+ with the aquarium salt but it does help. You can always use Indian Almond Leaves (IAL) or a tannin/blackwater extract if the betta needs some stress relief.

You're welcome! I've used StressCoat+ for years as my primary water conditioner and I absolutely love it.

You can find StressCoat at Walmart, it's not terribly expensive. (:
