aquarium salt

Ok I have seen a lot of aquarium salt threads but I never saw anything stating how long to wait until it is dissolved. I only have to put in 1 tablespoon. So before I put it in and guess how long. How long does it take to dissolve??

That depends. If you use warm water it dissolves pretty quickly also if you stir it that helps too. Just make sure you don't see any salt crystals before you add your fish back in.

If your adding it to a tank with gravel, etc then I would dissolve it in a bowl of water then pour that in the tank.

You will also know when it dissolves. It simply "disappears", so you won't see it anymore.

You don't need to dissolve it before adding it,

I use to think I had too dissolve it first,
Until I found out otherwise.
Just toss it in the tank, Alot of fish LOVE playing in it,

I should add
Their is also another benefit to just tossing it in.
It can sometimes give you heads up to a parasite being present in your fish,
If they spend time "Flickering" in it, you may want to take a look at possible treatment.

Where did you hear that? Everything I've ever read has said you HAVE to dissolve it before adding or it can cause burns.
