Tetra Aquarium Salt safe to use?

Post by azbywhitecalf » Wed Nov 18, 2020 3:08 pm

Hi! I’m trying to get some salt for my salt water tank- is this brand safe to use?

Tetra Aquarium Salt https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/tetra-aqua ... 0199568881

If not- any Canadian suggestions? (I don’t want to order online right now)

Unfortunately, that does not provide all the minerals that hermit crabs require.

Where in Canada are you? Pet Smart carries Instant Ocean.

Do you have any local pet stores? Can you see if they can get Instant Ocean or one of the other marine salts?

No problem! I think you can go online and see if they have it in stock so that you don't make the trip for nothing (or can ask them to order it in).
