Discus and salt

Written by allan on . Posted in Diseases, Health and Treatments

I just got 11 15 month old Discus and put them in my 72 gal Bowfront they look great. The dealer told me to use 2 tbs of Non-iodized salt with their water. Is this necessary? How much should I use with each water change? Amount per 10 Gal?

Reply:
1. What your dealer says is true.
2. We do this quite often while changing water.
3. Your tank must be bare without plants.
4. Plants will die if you add in salt.
5. Your tank is 72 gal. You can add in as much as 3 tablespoons.
