Freshwater Salts

A freshwater aquarium salt, like API Aquarium Salt, can make a big difference in fish health. Salt helps fish gills function, increases respiration, eases stress, reduces the toxic effect of nitrite, and improves the efficiency of medication. Other aquarium salt uses include solution for a therapeutic dip to help with fin rot and other infections.

Want to know how to use aquarium salt? Freshwater aquarium salt, which is different from marine saltwater, should be added to a tank, about 1 Tbs per 5 gallons. Remember that the salt does not evaporate out, so it doesn’t need to be constantly added. Rather, add a small amount to compensate for water changes.
