Exclamation AQ salt making betta angsty

So I dosed my tank with the medicinal dose of AQ Salt, 1 tsp/gal I have 10 gal, almost a week ago for what I guessed was fin rot but now it seems like it probably was tailbiting in an odd way, I just don't know. Anyway, since I've added the salt, my fish's usual glass surfing behavior has become even more intense and exclusively glass surfs on the bottom. He goes straight along the gravel and keeps trying to butt his head against the glass and gravel. It's very strange and frantic. When he's not there, this is rarely, he seems to swim a bit jerky and fast to the top for air and swims back down to glass surf frantically. This is odd and it's worrying me. Do you think this is due to the AQ salt? I'm going to remove 50% of it today and see how much different he acts.

Did you dissolve it, or just throw it in?

You want to dissolve it first then put in it.
