On one hand you have short term stress from a water changes and if done correctly it should not cause too much stress...

On the other hand-from no water changes/treatment- you have stress from ammonia, bad bacteria build up, injury that can progress to bacterial infection...all of which are more stressful and lowers immunity

Aquarium Salt is not just for parasites, short term use in the correct dosage can be very effective for treatments and less stressful than OTC medication.

Well define "alot". If its in an unfiltered tank, you would have to change it alot almost on a dialy basis depending on your tank size. but yes, listen to the advice that they all are giving^^^

As for declorinator, I recommend Jungle: COMPLETE WATER CONDITIONER. It's a great water declorinater that also promotes the healing of wounds and infection. Don't forget the saltbaths and daily water changes- I have a male who has had half of his tail bitten off (Aggresive female) and is almost completly healed up!!!

Ask her how she survives when the economy sucks? (She lives but life is a lot better when the economy is thriving.)
