In the past I have always used the recommended amount of sea salt (1tbs per 5 gal) when I did a water change. I've never seen it mentioned on this forum. Do you recommend the use of sea salt or not?

Thanks,
Justin Reude

What happens when you put salt on regular crops or house plants?
Pretty much the same thig that occurs with most aquarium plants, a few, and I mean a few, can tolerant higher leels, but most every plant does not like high sodium/Na+.

No, problem.
Use GH booster for more "minerals", instead.
