Aquarium salt (sodium chloride) can be an effective treatment when used for the right reason, dosage and durations with salt tolerant fish.

Nothing is a cure all or will have little effect-even antibiotics-unless you fix the bottom line problem and support the immune response.

I have used sea salt in a pinch with the same results as AQ salt. I just made sure to read the ingredients first to see if there were any additives. Usually, if sea salt does not have additives, it is labeled as "natural".

That looks safe to me. Try grinding it before measuring it because with crystals that large you won't get an accurate measurement and it will take forever to dissolve.
