API Aquarium Salt is made from evaporated sea salt and is a must-have for your aquarium, promoting fish health by improving gill function, making it easier for fish to breathe.
Aquarium Salt also provides essential electrolytes that fish need to reach peak coloration and vitality. These electrolytes may be lost each time you perform a partial water change, and will need to be replenished.
Use API Aquarium Salt in freshwater aquarium tanks when starting a new aquarium, and any time you perform a water change. Care should be taken when using salt in aquariums with live plants, as some plants may be sensitive.
Add 1 rounded tablespoon for every 5 gallons or 0.5 teaspoon for every gallon of aquarium water.
