Some salt is actually beneficial, but don't go dumping in table salt. Goto a pet store and find some aquarium salt. I have some in a small box. It helps reduce stress and promotes heathly gill function. Just don't put too much in, different fish have different tolerances.

salt tolerance: there is a range of tolerable salt concentrations for those species (you'll have to do the research...or some other helpful member :smile:)

no NaCl: true saltwater is more than just H2O + NaCl...you wouldn't be simulating the proper natural conditions with just table salt
