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.

Clearing the Water

Clearing the Water

API offers reliable three-step filtration for tanks of all sizes with their FILSTAR XP Canister filters and wide variety of filter media. 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.

Superior Nutrition

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.

    aquarium salt

    By on

    I use this in my goldfish tank. Great value. I use salt in my goldfish tank after a water change. Help keep them healthy. Also if I get a new fish it helps. I love using chewy because here in Marshville we do not have a pet store. I also like not having to drive to another city when I need something. Thanks Chewy.

    Great stuff

    By on Top 500 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.
