plecos in saltwater

Recommended Posts

i was wondering if you can add salt to aquarium water if you have plecos in there. for some reason some of my fish have white spot and i need to treat the tank but i dont want to kill my little plecos. i dont know how the white spot got in there i have not added any fish for about 4 months.

the fish are my pair of leaf fish and some ornamental goldfish + the plecos. i know some treatments are harmful to plecs and thats why i want to use salt and the temperature.

thanks in advance matt

you should be able to add salt at a rate of 1tblsp per 40litres , ive done this with plecs and had nothing bad happen so far

dont know how the white spot got in there i have not added any fish for about 4 months.

poor water quality + stressed fish can = white spot

we had a death of a goldfish that we didnt notice, im thinking a small amonia spike.

I di a fairly large water change and am treating with machite green and now salt, the temp is on 28C just to help kill those little parasites.
