Great article on how to use salt in aquariums and ponds

One effective method to combat fish parasites is by using salt for freshwater treatments. In this article, we will discuss the dosage, types of salt, duration of treatment, and the parasites that can be effectively treated using this method.

Dosage and Types of Salt:

When using salt for aquarium treatment, the recommended dosage is 1 tablespoon per gallon* of water for freshwater tanks. You can use iodized salt, as aquarium salt. You can use rock-salt or kosher salt, as long as the label says 99% pure salt. A cow or deer ‘salt lick’ will work but NOT if it contains ‘Trace Minerals’.
