Epsom salt and aquarium salt are two different things. Epsom salt is Magnesium sulfate and can act as a laxitive for the fish

That is correct-Epsom and aquarium salt are too different salts-it is great as a laxative and it can also help with edema issues and has the antibacterial/fungal properties as well
You keep them in the salt 24 hours for a 10 day treatment, I also make 100% daily water changes too, this is why I like to pre-mix my salt
If you have IAL-great use that but if not and you live in an area that is safe of pollutions and poisons you can also use native oak leaves that have turned brown and naturally fallen from the tree
If he is acting like he is hungry and would eat, feed him very small amount every other day during treatment.
