i never put salt in my tank before, but my LFS said its good for my ciclids. He also said that once its added that it wouldnt be needed again. My fish are looking more energetic and healty since i added the salt. My question is about water changes. Does the salt content remain when I do water changes? If not then how much should I reapply?
Most cichlids prefer hard water. If your water is hard, there is no need to add salt. If your water is soft and acidic, then adding salt somehow affects that in a way that is supposedly beneficial. That's all hearsay and obviously i don't know what i'm talking about. I've never added salt in any of my tanks.
