I have a 5.5 split and planted aquarium, so far with no fish in it. Because it is planted, I know that I am not supposed to use much salt (if any). Well salt has always been my "go to" remedy for a sick fish. Short of taking my boys out and treating them in a different tank should they get sick, what options do I have?
I was thinking Indian Almond leaves (or that African tea, Roobios or something) would be perfect. However, I have not read much about their use in a planted aquarium. Would the leaves have any positive or negative effect on the plants? I am holding off ordering these leaves until I get a definitive answer. Thank you in advance!
