A proper salt bath
I've read that I should do 1 table spoon for every 5 gallons, which I've only had to do once, whoo, no visible hydra! I keep my tanks at 76-78, but I'm getting off subject.
I've read that I'm supposed to dissolve the salt before I put it in the tank. When I did this, I put the salt in the cup and then I put in 5 table spoons of tank water and sloshed it around until about half of the salt was dissolved and then I put the cup in the tank. My fish LOVED the cup, so I had to leave it in the tank.
Can someone explain to me what happens if I put water and then salt, the opposite of what I did?
