It's generally advised to only use AqS when your fish is sick (finrot kind of stuff) to help kill of parasites. Using it all of the time can actually harm your fish. When you need to use it, just follow the instructions (:

For a general treatment for bacterial, fungal, parasite, wounds, injury, nitrite poisoning- I use Aquarium salt 1tsp/gal up to 3tsp/gal in salt tolerant fish for no longer than 10 days

For edema/swelling problems-like popeye, dropsy I use-Epsom salt 1tsp/gal up to 3tsp/gal for no longer than 10 days

Long term use of salt or wrong dosage- can cause resistant issues and cause internal organ damage

With both treatment I like to QT the fish and make 100% daily water changes

I pre-mix my salt in a 1gal jug to make water changes and correct dosage easier

I normally use it when I clean my tanks and such. Or when I get a really sick fish from a bad care takers
