I started doing a 25% water change daily with 1/2 tsp of aquarium salt added everyday to the bowl. But I went home last weekend and left the fish when I got back yesterday the bowl that I've been adding the salt to had gotten very hazy with long (excuse the vulgarity) snot-like strands of stuff in it. It also has a very unpleasant smell thats kind of fishy.
My other tank that I haven't added the salt to is clear.. although it does need to be cleaned from left over food on the bottom. It also doesn't have a smell.
Is this smell a by product of the salt? Could more bacteria etc be growing now that I keep my lamp over it to heat it up?
Im doing 50% changes now until I can get the new 10 gal set up.... Looking to buy one off craigslist then adding new filter, heater, divider etc. Very excited
