Is it safe to add Epsom salts to my 10 gallon NPT? It has snails, plants, and one betta.
I'm leaving for college and can't bring this betta or tank with me, so I would like to leave her here to be fed by my sisters until I return on the weekends, when I can. I believe she is developing an illness, though. My male betta that I'm currently dealing with has come down with dropsy. I'm hoping the case isn't the same with her, but if it is, I'd like to get treating right away. I want to put some epsom salt in the tank now, as a precaution. She's much more active now that before, but I'm still worried.
Is it safe to add epsom salts to the tank? Will it hurt the plants and/or snails?
