What is the proper dosage for eps and aq salt?

I have been really busy and neglecting my tanks, so I had a free day and I decided to fix everything. Came to the sorority and we had a major case of the fuzzies and swollen gills. I put them from 2 large meals to 5 small meals a day (aiming to keep those bellies permanently full) but I haven't used salt in months so what are the dosages again? I plan to take the worst two out and treat them separately. Also what is the proper concentration of epsom salt for pellet soaking? Don't need any other advice unless what I'm doing seems really wrong so I didn't fill out the thing.

the info is on the Disease sticky you may want to read it as it may address some of your concerns regarding symptoms. not sure on the dosage on pellets as the measurements are in cc, maybe you can crush them and measure accordingly.

Aquarium Salt: 1 tsp./gallon for minors - 2 tsp./gallon for major

Epsom Salt: 1-3 teaspoons/gallon ranging from minor to major

Remember, these are not cure-all meds. Use different meds when fish are in more danger than lets say, fin rot.

Why do you want to soak your pellets in ES? If there are parasites, try metro.

I don't have a good LFS or any money so I'm going to try this and see if they respond first. It doesn't look too bad yet. I've heard soaking pellets can help treat internal problems and I'm not sure what they have or where they have it right now.
