    I'm in a bad situation, I usually deal with fin rot with AQ salt, but I'm all out and can't go buy some, I've tried PWC's but it isn't helping all I have is epsom salt, and I know that only really has effect on internal problems, so I dunno what to do :( I need help fast...

    I’ve never heard of food lion but most grocery stores do. Just make sure it is organic and pure. Make sure it is non-iodized. If it doesn’t say, get organic, pure, non-iodized table salt. Keep in mind that if you use the table salt, you will need a smaller spoon because there is no air in between the salt “pebbles”/“granules”.
    Research “how to cure fin rot with non-iodized table salt on ______” (whatever species it is).


    MAKE SURE IT IS NON-IODIZED OR ELSE IT WILL DIE/GET SICK. It will do more harm than good if it isn’t non-iodized

    I got this salt I couldn't find organic salt but I found this salt that has no iodine in it, it's just pure salt, will this work?

    This salt should be sodium chloride.... look up how to give a fish a salt bath. My betta has fin rot right now and that is what I do, but I have aquarium salt. How severe is the fin rot? Do you have time to order aquarium salt?
