- Hi Rickey, I am part of an Aussie based fish forum, and it seems a lot of members on there are big advocates for using aquarium salt for their betta fish.
There's currently a disagreement about its benefits on the associated FB page, and I was wondering if you had any articles etc. that I could link to that would help support an opposing view.
It seems like aquarium salt has become a legend in its own right with all the things it is alleged to cure/do and so I was thinking that an argument based on science rather than anecdotal evidence would probably be more effective.
