FAQ

Should I add API AQUARIUM SALT every time I perform a partial water change?

Add 1 rounded tablespoon of API AQUARIUM SALT for every 5 U.S. gallons or ½ rounded tablespoon for every U.S. gallon of water. When doing a water change, add any treatments and supplements to the new water before adding salt to your aquarium.

Can API AQUARIUM SALT create high general hardness readings?

API AQUARIUM SALT will not affect the hardness levels of your water.

Does API AQUARIUM SALT affect the tank pH? API AQUARIUM SALT does not raise or lower the pH levels in your tank.

I think my fish has a fungal infection. Can I use API AQUARIUM SALT to get rid of it?

API AQUARIUM SALT is intended to keep your fish healthy, and while it does promote disease recovery, it is not a holistic solution to heal and treat fish diseases. API® BETTAFIX, PIMAFIX, and FUNGUS CURE are all options that API offers to combat fungal infections. These can all be used with the added support of API AQUARIUM SALT.

These powerful filters constantly circulate the water, trapping organic waste and odors, removing harmful ammonia and contaminants, and helping good bacteria to thrive in the tank.

Feeding your aquarium inhabitants, whether they're tropical fish, turtles or newts, is something that can be tricky without the right food. API developed a special diet for every type of fish—one that's highly palatable, which leads to less waste in the tank. And that means less ammonia to cloud the water. For your turtle friends, premium floating pellets and stick treats provide multiple vitamins for a stronger, healthier shell.

  • Works for bettas.

    By on

    I bought this to go along with the betta fix. My betta was starting to get a white patch on it's head and wasn't swimming and eating as much. So I started using betta fix and this aquarium salt. Now the white patch on it's head has vanished and he seems to be swimming and eating more. I was also using tap water with aqua safe but I think they changed something in aqua safe because I remember it having a strange smell to it but now it doesn't. So now I use plain spring water you get in stores without aqua safe and I believe that has helped the betta as well.

  • Great stuff

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I bought this to treat one of my Bettas who I had bought out of pity with finrot. With careful salt measurements, quarantine, and daily water changes, my fish's tail was healing up in no time. It provided a safer and more effective cure to finrot than regular medicines.

  • Making Fish Healthy

    By on

    Fighting a high nitrate that has not come down with daily water charges, cleaned gravel, less feeding. All others show good reads. Started adding this to my 75 gallon and we are making progress. Easy to use and fish are looking better!
