I'd suggest you do plenty of research and then determine what you think is right for you and the fish you keep

small doses are Good for most livebearers(increases the conductivity of the water)….not so Good for soft water fish

I use NaCL for medication only (salt baths)

I use a number of other salts for shellies….but not NaCl

Many add aquarium salt(NaCl) at each water change believing that it is healthy for fish….and they swear by it

(thats what the Industry likes you to believe too...because they sell tonnes of the stuff)

but most freshwater fish are designed that their cells are saltier than the water they live in

(the opposite is true for marine fish)

Change that balance too much and you stress the fish by changing the osmotic pressure in the cells

Good Luck!
