Thanks for the input, everyone. From what I remember, a salt bath is 1 tsp of aquarium salt to a cup of water, right?
Do I just plop him in the cup? How long should I leave him in there?

Yeah, it's normal. Actually, when Eco Complete gets old, it doesn't smell like anything, so the rotten egg smell is how you know it's fresh. Yum.
