Keepers fall into two camps salt and no salt, I'm pretty anti salt myself in most case.
I think it one of the biggest myths in the hobby

Any triple antibiotics product containing bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin B, store brand or name brand. I don't known what is in A&D so can't make that call

Lanolin is the waxy oil from sheeps wool that makes them waterproof
Petrolatum is a oil based moisturizer



Most any drug store has a store brand the most common name brand is Neosporin
Triple Antibiotic Ointment with the Active ingredients
Bacitracin zinc, Neomycin sulfate, Polymyxin B sulfate

Everything has been going great until an hour ago. My baby is now very bloated and swimming upside down at the top of the water. Is there anything I can do for her?

She spent the night in a Tupperware and I woke up to big floaty poop and a right-side up fish.
