Salt types?!

So at home I have to different types of salts and wanted to know if one is safe for Betta first I have regular salt we use for food then, I have another salt that's more like crystals and on the ingredients it just says salt no other thing added its like salt used in alcoholic beverages like margaritas I wanted to know if I can add that one to my 5gallon tank for my Betta as i think he might have Velvet im also giving him Jungle Life Guard.

Also im afraid of doing a large water change since my ghost shrimp in there has recently gave birth and might hurt the fry? So how should I clean the tank? I have also turned of light near the tank only turn it on to feed him.

Also I have a heater and filter thermometer and a ammonia checking thingy:cry:
my Betta acts normally eats normally except i think he itches himself since he also has like discoloration patches in his body area but its not like ick or fuzzy or anything like that. im really worried help??

Ok thanks, but will a 1 gallon tank work i have an extra one but a betta died in it like 3 weeks ago she died because of petsmart they gave it to me sick and i didnt know about diseases then. should I perhaps bleach the gallon tank or rinse it in tap water like 20 times since soap isn't safe.

also will try to post some photos in the emergency section by tomorrow.
hmm tomorrow or Wednesday a brand new submersible heater is coming in the mail 50 watts 6inch and heat can be adjusted should i use this? a sponge filter is also coming in but i was holding that so i could use in the future for breeding my Betta.
and is it safe to split the medication in little Pisces my fish sometimes seems to eat some of it.
