hmm, I'll do some more digging on the salt, Metroplex usually works for me maybe you don't put enough dosage? 2 tablespoon per 10 gal. That's what most shops put when they just got angels and discus in.

heh yea I meant 2 mini spoon, but I saw the guy at lucky he put 2 regular table spoons on a 20 gal tank for this teenies angle babies. I use half of that 10$bottle to treat 80gal (whole bottle over 2 days) usually clears the parasites up
