My tank is planted. Could I get away with using a little less salt and not kill my plants? Not use any salt? Or get rid of the plants? the tank is in the Living Room so I would like it to look nice but of course I want the Discus to be happy and healthy. Another question The only Blood Red is pairing up the another kind. Should I pull it untill the other one pairs up with one of its own kind?
1. The fish are all right. There is not necessary to add salt in the tank. Salt is only to disinfest bacteria and some kinds of parasites.
2. If the fish is sick, you should treat them in the hospital tank, which is bare without plants.
3. Inter-married is no harm. Next round you can pair them with their own kind.
