Hi StarGirl the OP said,How big is your tank?
to add some live plants to my 30 gallon aquarium
Yeah you dont need the salt. Most dont use it in planted tanks. Snails are not too keen on it either.Hi,
My tank is 30 gallons.
I added the salt after reading that it put essential electrolytes in water that helps gill function, as a precautionary measure. About a quarter of what was recommended for my 30 gallon tank. No sick fish, that I can tell.
I have danios, guppies, platys, and 2 mystery snails. Total 13 inhabitants.
I do currently have some floating pennywort, but would like to add more plants. I can tell they like having it.
