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

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

    Good idea, QT and aquarium salt 1tsp/gal and 100% daily water changes is a good treatment when caught and treated early

    He has fungal infection and I'm thinking about trying salt before medication.

    I have never used sea salt and not sure what it is to give a good answer, do you have kosher salt, what you want to avoid is the anti-caking, the iodine in low doses is usually not harmful to salt tolerant fish
    What is wrong with your Betta

    Hi Oldfishlady Ares is sick and I don't have aquarium salt to work with, so would it be ok to use sea salt without iodine??

    Yes, and they are a pretty easy egg scatter- but will eat the eggs as fast as they are dropped.
    I use a 10g-76-78F-1-female and 2 males with a layer of marbles and java moss for the eggs to fall through to keep them from eating them. I use a mature tank and sponge filter, I make a large water change using cooler water the night before and the first thing in the AM when I turn on the lights they start to spawn, I remove all 3 adults after about 2-3 hours or if they stop spawning.

    If it was made for aquarium use-it should be non-toxic to fish.
    It is not uncommon for this to happen-those pretty bright colors usually fade, peel and/or become covered as time passes.
