Exclamation Can nerites live in high does of AQ salt?

One of my bettas in a divided 5 gallon tank recently developed open wounds. He is in QT with AQ salt, and I want to start treating the big tank and his tank mate, another betta, with AQ salt as well to prevent anything.

Can nerites live in a tank with high (3-5tsps in 5 gallons) of Aquarium Salt?

I know they live in brackish and salt water, but Im not sure about AQ, which I believe is different.

Also, I could move the snail into another tank, one where I grow plants, but it is NOT HEATED and can dip to 70'f and under for small to decent amounts of time. Can she live here?

Thank you for helping, I want everyone to be well and comfortable as we battle this strange illness....

Yes, they can. Aquarium salt is no different. It's plain ol' sodium chloride in fancy packages.

I think about it every night and day!

almost... depends if it has been de-iodized or not.

a small but important difference.

If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".

Usually its just not iodized, unlike table salt. It doesn't need to be de-iodized.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
