    In my 20 gallon i have a betta, which has velvet. I want to cure him ASAP. I want to put salt in, but i have live plants. Do you know if any of these are sensitive to the salt. I have anubias, java fern, jungle val, amazon sword, and crypto. And are otto sensitive to salt...i'm just curious.

    Java fern should be ok, not sure about the rest.
    And yes otos are sensitive to salt, they wouldn't appreciate salt in their tank

    Most of those plants should do okay with basic salt treatment.
