One of the ladies I brought home from the pet store yesterday seems to have Velvet. On the sticky that tell how to treat that it says to treat the same as ick, I copied this from the treatment section on Ink and just don't understand what it mean.
"Conservative: Add 1 tsp/gal Aquarium Salt 3 times, 12 hours apart so that you end up with 3 times the normal concentration. Perform daily 100% water changes to remove fallen parasites before they can reproduce. Replace the water with the right amount of salt."
Am I adding the salt to water to treat her with 3 times before I treat her? I know the salt is supposed to be dissolved before putting the betta in it. Or do I do a partial water change, adding salt water back in & in 12 hrs do another, then a 3rd after 12 hrs more followed by daily 100% changes? Can anyone please help me try and clear this up.
Also, after she is taken care of how do I clean her bowl? Do I need to take any special precautions? She's in a QT bowl of mine and I want to make sure it's safe to use for the next fish.
