Hi all
This was the first time I have added any Aquarium salt. It was only a bit to the water I was putting into the tank. Read it was helpful so thought it would be ok.
I tested for Ammonia again yesterday and it was "0". This was after the water change the day before. So I will test for it each day and see how long it takes for the the Ammonia to register again and then do another water change. I've yet to test for the other bad stuff so better do that today.

Be careful with the salt, as bettas are fairly sensitive to it so only small concentrations should be used. Also, keep in mind that salt doesn't get used up or evaporate and is only removed when you do water changes, so you only need to add as much salt as you remove when you do water changes or else you'll slowly increase the salinity of your water to unbearable levels.
