I think aquarium salt or epsom salt is better to use for a salt bath.

My fish Hypolita died hours after I gave her a salt bath. *sighs*

We did the salt bath on Neptune a few days back and he took it well. I had a question on this though. After the salt bath, can we use part of this salt water bath for the water change? I'm assuming since it has salt in it, we can use 30-40% of it for water change as well.

It is the best fin rot treatment I have ever used, especially when caught early.

I would not. The idea is it kills off whatever is ailing the fish, it is not "clean" water afterwards.

Right now he is in a large bowl, holding about just under a gallon. I filled it 1/2 way with the salt water and he's just swimming around like normal! At least he doesn't hate it....
