Can I add aquarium salt?

I have a 5 female betta sorority in my 29 gallon tank. But they share it with 10 neon tetras, 2 marbel hachetfish, and 3 cory catfish. Is aquarium salt bad for the cories?

From what I've learned off of this site you shouldn't add salt to water where scaleless fish are present.
It'll burn them.

Yes whoever said the above is correct. Salt is very harmful to scaleless fish. Especially corydora catfish. They do not like it.

If you needed to add salt, I would recommend doing a salt bath on all of them, then adding them back in.

This is also a good tip for when you split a tank and one fish gets sick.

Thanks guys! No one is sick at the moment, I just use it in my split tanks for my male bettas. It really helps prevent any sickness from starting, so I was thinking about using it for my girls! I'm glad I asked though :)
