Re: [UniQuaria] just how much salt?
- When I lived in L.A that is what I used for all my fish. Thils was 50 years ago, and some fish we have now were not available them. I am thinking of using that much now, because my well has basically NO salt in the water. It is filtered through granite, and there is no salt or iron. If I grow most live plants I have to add iron to the water too.Nadine----- Original Message -----From: Dora SmithSent: Friday, February 27, 2009 7:31 AMSubject: Re: [UniQuaria] just how much salt?Is one teaspoon of salt per water right for brackish water?Yours,

I been noticing that my mollies do better with salt in their tank. I also noticed I have two male mollies. I should definately add a few more females to help with the fighting over females bit. I have one female that looks pregnant with her first fry. Now I am feeding them tropical flakes at least once a day, since there is algae present naturally I think they feed off of that as well. Just how much salt is enough to add to a ten gallon tank? I do not wish to shock them with adding too much at once so I will do it gradually. Today I added two teaspoons of salt to their water. ALl the mollies perked up quite a bit.
- Actually, what I really want to know is how much salt qualifies the water as "brackish". I know what can and can't take "brackish", but not what is "brackish".
I'm afraid this stuff about specific gravity tells me absolutely nothing that I can understand.
How much salt per gallon of water is "brackish"?
I think that swordtails ened "brackish" water; how much salt are you supposed to put in their water?
