Epsom salt question

So I've been reading , And I need a definitive answer as to how long should I leave my betta in the epsom salt treatment. In the interest of safety I'm only going about 20 mins. However God forbid, If I have to do this again for my betta , what is the recommended time to be in the bath? Also Would It cause any Serious Problems If they were left in the bath overnight? Thanks Guys

Depending on what you are treating and how much Epsom salt you are using......Epsom salt is a pretty safe product to use with Bettas- both long and short term.....Aquarium salt-you should limit that to 10 days treatment not bath....

Treatment in 1-3tsp/gal leaving the Betta in the Epsom salt for at least 10 days...sometimes longer.....I don't like to do baths because they can sometime be dangerous due to the amount of salt needed....

What are you treating....
