    The generic brand that I get only list the sodium chloride and iodine on the label, I can't say 100% that the other stuff would be fish safe...better safe than sorry...I wouldn't use it, just do the 100% water changes until you can get to the pet shop......

    Do you mean on the ingredients label because on mine it says salt, sodium silicoaluminate, sodium thiosufate, potassium iodide. Are any of those toxic? Thanks sooo much for your help!!!

    That is what I use to hatch brine shrimp and treat salt tolerant fish-the only thing listed on the label is: Sodium Chloride with 45% Iodine

    It doesn't say what type of salt it is though...it says H-E-B (the store's name) Quality Iodized Salt.

    Ooooo...I have another type of salt that I got from a grocery store. It's iodized 45%, but it's not anti-caking. Would it work?

    That is what you want to avoid...anti-caking agents

    Can the salt have calcium silicate. It says it's an anticaking agent.
