Oh God. Oh God. Oh God. CORYCATS, can they be in AQ salt?

Okay! So I bought 3 peppered corycats today to go into one of my 10g tanks because they are so CUTE. Well, I decided I was going to put them in my 10g betta tank but then I remembered my betta doesn't like the bubbler.

So I forgot why I wasn't putting them in my 10g tank with my (still small) Angelfish. I forgot that I had AQUARIUM SALT in that tank. 5 tsp worth for the 10g tank. I've already started drip acclimating them!

Will they be okay? Have I screwed up? D:

They'll be fine. AQ salt doesn't hurt anything. It IS for Aquariums.

But I would NOT keep a Betta and them with Anglefish. 1- That is WAYYYYY overstocked, 2 the Bettas and the angles will fight.

No no no, I have two separate tanks! XD One has a betta and one has an angelfish!

Edit: I just know that PLECOS and some other bottom feeders can't handle ANY salt. So I was worried about my dear new corycats.

Ahhhh, okay then. But Anglefish still need 55 gallons.

No, Plecos can handle a little. They just can't do epsom salt I believe. Correct me if i'm wrong.

No! Corys cannot tolerate salt. They are scaleless fish and cannot be in AS. Get them out.

Cories can't handle salt so you really need to move them.

Corydoras do not tolerate salt well...But I don't think 1/2 tsp per gallon would kill them...It might be stressful for them though...I wouldn't recommend keeping them in with the salt...

I would move them to the tank with the betta. It's not absolutely necessary for them to have a bubbler. In fact my cories hate the bubbler we tried more than the betta did.
