Electrolytes are essential for the uptake of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide and ammonia through the gills. A lack of electrolytes may cause serious health problems. API AQUARIUM SALT, made from evaporated sea water, provides these essential electrolytes. AQUARIUM SALT does not evaporate, and is not filtered out, so it should only be added with each water change. Care should be taken when using salt with live plants, as some plants may be sensitive.

Includes: Aquarium Salts (amounts listed below)
Used For: Fresh Water Aquariums

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I love this aquarium salt! When I first set up my 60 gallon hex, I got ick because one of the fish was in an ick infested tank, and I was a newbie at this fish keeping stuff. So, my whole entire tank ended up with ick. I was told to use aquarium salt until I could get ick treatment. I put the salt in, and the next morning when I woke up, the ick had significantly cleared up. I kept the salt in for another 4 days and the ick was completely gone. The same thing happened when my betta had fin rot. Give this a try if you're not using this already. Use it in freshwater aquariums as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have for fish longevity This is good stuff for sure. Keeps fish active and ALIVE through an initial nitrogen cycle. A few pieces of advice though: 1) DISSOLVE it first in a bucket of water that you have extracted from the aquarium and then pour it back in. DO NOT throw the granules straight from the box into the tank. If you do and any of it lands on your pleco or other bottom dweller, it will BURN HIS SKIN! 2) Dose exactly as directed on the box. More is not better. You still have a freshwater tank after all. 3) Don't use this product if you keep snails in your aquarium. They do not tolerate salt at any level and will die quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fish Life Saver This aquarium salt has brought many of my fish back from the brink of death. It's cured fin rot and countless other diseases that I was unfortunate enough to come across when I was first starting out with fish keeping, and thank goodness I did my research and purchased this AQ salt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fish Rescue!! Whenever I get a fish that has been in a community tank i add this aquarium salt to the water to help ensure that my new fish hasn't caught anything that could harm them or when I rescue a sick betta that has been poorly taken care of this product usually does the trick. It also works well if the fish has been fed too much and is constipated. If the fish gets really sick i'll put them in a small holding tank and give them a salt bath for a few mintues. Works like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS STUFF IS AMAZING! This is the best stuff in the world for fin rot. I started using it in my tank three days ago and my betta is almost completely cured after having it for almost two months!! It has also helped his gills. An overall amazing product for freshwater fish.
