Aquarium salt and crustaceans

Yes, aquarium salt is safe for crustaceans. At least to an extent, salt baths/dips are very commonly used for treating parasites/diseases in them. I have done a salt dip on a shrimp, much higher concentration than you listed above. But that was a short period, few minutes. 
Is the salt for treating the crayfish, or something else in the tank? If for the crayfish I’d suggest just doing a salt bath.

I don’t know a ton about dropsy, but I didn’t think it was one of those things that was contagious. But more of a symptom of another issue with the fish.  Sorry I can’t be more helpful with this, but I don’t have experience with it. Nor do I know the effects of the salt with crustaceans for longer periods.
