Not everyone uses salt. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. There is a bit of contraversy about salt. Some swear by it and say it helps a lot of things. Others say it doesn't do anything and can harm fish. Some people use it only if their fish are sick.

In my view, I don't think salt should ever be added to a freshwater aquarium. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule. Certain fish benefit directly from salt, such as mollies. Salt can also be used in treating ich. Those are the only two exceptions that come to mind...

I agree. And if you do choose to use salt you use a half teaspoon for every gallon
