How do I put salt in my aquarium?

I'm pretty sure my goldfish is suffering from nitrite poisoning, so I did a large water change earlier today and he seems to be a little better.

I know adding salt can help with nitrite poisoning, so how do I add some? I know you can't use salt with iodide, but would rock or kosher salt work? Thanks.How do I put salt in my aquarium?
Yes, kosher salt is generally safe. You would mix it in a separate cup and add the dissolved salt to the tank, mixing thoroughly. Add about 1 tablespoon or less per gallon of water. Aeration or additional surface water movement should be added to provide plenty of dissolved oxygen in the tank.
