Sorry about all the questions, just have very quickly gotten attached to my little guy and dont want anything bad to happen to him, but i do have one more.

I added some aquarium salt to my betta's tank today to help with the fin rot. I added it in the 1/2 teaspoon to 1 gallon ratio that the container said. I know that your supposed to watch your betta for signs of any allergy or discomfort from the salt, but i was just wondering what this would look like.

At the moment, Ryu is swimming in his tank like normal, nothing unusually that I can see.

he took a nip out of his tail at one point, too. x:

when my brother's delta had fin rot(from tail biting and bad care at the pet store), we saw new growth within two weeks. :d so, i'm sure he'll be fine. >w< keep up the water changes, and add tannins. x: it helps with new growth. :3

As long as he's swimming normally I'm sure you're fine. I use aq. salt with mine, and epsom with my new guy who seemed to have some minor swimming issues yesterday. They're all doing fine now. :)

Thanks again! He seems to be doing fine with the salt, adding it daily and doing daily water changes. Your help has been amazing.
