    I tried the zinc sulphate years ago and it melted the fins. I to would love to know the zinc sulphate mix..


    Zinc does not melt fins at all as Ive had them in there for a year or more. They get stiff nad probably useless. Your salt destroyed them.
    Ive seen salted fish get sent to me (not my advice) and seen all the fins and skins destroyed by it.

    Borax much better than salt unless your making jerky
