Thank you for your input. Rock salt, like aquarium salt, is known to have a healing effect on fin rot but does nothing to help the fish heal other than kill the external infection. IAL extract and tannins also have a calming effect on bettas. For fish basically stress = disease. So if you kill the stress, you kill the disease.

The one thing I'm curious about is your claim that microbes cannot grow in alkaline (pH above 7.0) water. Could you back this up with scientific studies? I've never heard anything about this.
