Epsom Salt Question

If I use Epsom salts in my 2 gallon tank is it necessary to do daily water changes or should I continue with my usual water changes?

Why are you adding Epsom salt to the tank?

The salt itself will remain in the tank. But the decision to do daily water changes, or not, depends on the condition that you're trying to treat....

Epsom salt is usually just used temporarily while your fish is dealing with an internal issue.

Agree.. need to know why you are using epsom salt. Knowing what is going on will help determine the appropriate way to treat using epsom, and how to go about the treatment.

If the fish is not ill, then no need for epsom - it's gentle, but it's pointless if he isn't sick with internal problems.
