Hi guys,

I've been doing an epsom salt bath (in a quart of water 1 tsp dissolved and conditioned similar temp water) for about a week now every other day.

My question is --> will 15 minutes be enough or would it be safe to let them soak for longer?

Flippy is slowly getting better. But, he lost an eye and still has white fuzz on him. Now he is eating and swimming again.

I thought epsom salt was used for bloating and constipation not for injuries i could be wrong so hopefully more people will chime in.

Epsom salt can be used to reduce swelling or to help with constipation. It will not help with fungus, and Aquarium salt is the one that helps healing wounds. But betta's are extremely sensitive to salt, in my opinion you should stop using it. Clean water can prevent infection.
