Aquarium Salt

Using Aquarium Salt In Your Freshwater Aquarium

Aquarium Salt is actually a very beneficial and useful treatment in your aquarium. 

Aquarium Salt can be used for a number of reasons:
  • when setting up a new fish tank
  • When undertaking general water changes as part of your regular maintenance regime
  • treating a diseased fish within your aquarium
We stock and use API Aquarium Salt and we find it really benefits the health of the fish as well as being very simple to use.

The benefits of using aquatic salts in your aquarium are:

  • it provides your fish with essential electrolytes which fish need to reach optimum health and colour
  • it aids fish in uptake of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide so that they can breathe easier and live longer
  • It improve the health of the fish gills so that the gills are more immune from diseases and damage

Be cautious if you have any plecos or plants in your tank as it can affect them in a negative way. Do not use aquarium salt if you have shrimp or any other invertebrates as it can cause serious damage and may lead to their death.
