Please note that here in the states they have table salt in TWO FORMS_
iodized, and non-iodized.  Do NOT, repeat do NOT use the iodized stuff in
your tank.  The iodide ions in iodized salt is FATAL to fish.
    The non-, repeat, NON-iodized salt is the same price, and sits right next
to the bad stuff in the supermarket.  It is labeled Plain, or Non-iodized,
and states <<This product does not provide iodine, an essential dietary
mineral>>, or something like that.
