    LittleBlueFishlets. I just want to say how impressed I am with the help and advice you give people here. You should seriously look into writing a book. Your a class act that has helped a lot of people and I continue to learn from your posts.

    I sent one off Matt you should get the stitkos they are pristine beauties and none finer than pikb with this species.

    LittleBlue the stickies are helpful but as I read some of them I keep wanting to say "except for" or "but". Opinions change over time and the disease section really needs help imo. More detail and more current info would be so helpful.

    Yes! They've been bothering me for a long time.

    For example, the one in the Diseases/Emergencies forum was written two years ago. Some of the info is out-of-date, and Darkmoon hasn't been active on the forum in a long time, etc.

    I thought Mods and the new Reference Team was supposed to work on updating the stickies?

    I totally agree with you! anything more than 1 per 5-10 is ridiculous and mis uses the product. It will stress the fish at this level. Kidney issues soon to follow. Here is the thing. At low dose this is the best preventative out there and helps the fish osmoregulation. All and I mean all my fish will never be off it except for 1 wc per month of only primed water. this is because the change in salinity really screws over the pathogens as much as the salt... they are slow to adjust. This debate has raged for years now but its clearer to me now after speaking with the very best IBC and others way smarter than me. My bet is that if everyone used aq salt and at proper doses the amount of sick fish would go down 80%. Btw I respect you so much! My water is hard but because the salt also helps exchange ammonia and nitrate ions it helps because my ph is high and and sensitive to the ammonia and nitrites because of that.

    Re your comments on the Aq use thread: IMO, adding 1 tsp Aq salt per 5-10 gal is fine.

    But I see a lot of people recommending 1-3 tsp per 1 gal, which is WAY more than you use (5-30 times your dosage) and using this amount for up to 14 days. The stress on the kidneys would be incredible. And if the fish is already sick or stressed, well, this is why I generally don't recommend using it.

    Is your water hard or soft? If it's soft, then adding a small amount of salt would definitely be beneficial. If it's really soft, then a small amount of magnesium and calcium salts might be worth considering, too.
