    Fresh dechlorinated water IMO/E is one of the best things for fish long term health.
    Making regular water changes of at least 50% twice weekly in 6g and less aquariums with filters and 50% and 100% weekly on unfiltered tanks that have one Betta, more depending on stocking.
    10g and larger at least 50% weekly depending on stocking, filtration and live plants use.
    This is with uneaten food removed after feeding and not overfeeding

    Since I am new to this forum, I am wondering where someone would see the pictures I placed in albums under my CF? I specified them as public...

    Aquarium salt is Sodium Chloride and Epsom salt is Magnesium sulfate
    I use both for different treatments/reasons
    Espom salt I like to use for constipation, bloat, edema, swim bladder problems for its laxative properties and reduce inflammation/edema,
    Aquarium salt I use for healing of wounds parasites/pathogens/fungus/mold etc...
    Both have properties for antibacterial/fungal issues to a degree
    On both I use a 1tsp/gal to 3tsp/gal for no longer than 10 days and I like to always do treatment in QT so I can do 100% water changes and have my salts pre-mixed so not to over dose.
    I try to stay as natural as I can with treatments as I have found the fish tolerates it better
    Also, epsom salt is plant safe, aquarium salt can kill some plants especially when used long term
