Trusted to help sick fish

API is one of the brands I trust most for aquarium products. I keep this salt on hand for quarantine tanks, and always add this at a concentration of 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons, along with whatever other medicinal treatments I'm doing. I use a small jar to shake up the salt with some QT tank water before adding. I have plants in all my tanks now, and I no longer use salt regularly. Instead, I watch my parameters, particularly my GH, TDS, and KH levels, and only use added salt as medicine.

Great for mollies

I always put a little bit of this in my tank for my mollies, they seem very happy. I haven't had any fish get sick yet but if they did, I would definitely use this.

Great for my quarantine tank!

I have used API's aquarium salt for years and it has never let me down. I only use in my quarantine tank since my main tank is planted and salt will kill my plants. I use salt for its healing properties and also to naturally treat external parasites such as ich (with increased water temp). Make sure you have proper tank aeration when using since it can lower the oxygen levels in your water. This is a great product for freshwater tank onwers!

Salt for a healthy tank.

I have Rainbows and a Molly. They like a little salt in their water so I use a teaspoon per gallon of new water when I'm cleaning and re-filling the tank. Check to see if your fish prefer salt though before adding it on a regular basis to your aquarium. This stuff can also be used for all types of fish as a treatment when they are sick.

This stuff is great!

I breed fish and use this product all the time! It's great for repairing tattered fins or open sores and for distressing new fish. I highly recommend it!

Must Have Salt

Highly recommended for proper tank maintenance, don't even think of owning a tank without it.

Laura, Harrisonburg VA on 2010/05/28
Aquarium Salt - Great, but a warning for newbies

The API aquarium salt really helped me through a tough period with tank nitrites when I was cycling. One warning about salt - it can actually "recharge" some freshwater ammonia absorbing crystals/products. I made this mistake starting out. It caused the ammonia crystals to purge ALL of the held ammonia into the tank.

Excellent Product

I have used it for years, great for water changes, all my fish have loved it!

David, New York NY on 2007/02/13
