to salt or not to salt

not sure if to keep water salted with my 1an2 gal bowls with every change? I change parts mid-week and full once a week. If salted would it be better to just make a 5 gal drum of water so its done and correct salt is made at once

The debate continues with the use of long term salt
IMO/E- long term salt is not good or needed with this species
Long term use and use in wrong dosage can cause resistant issues and then the salt will not be effective when needed for treatment
It can cause kidney damage and bloat issue when used long term

It is a great product when used short term in the correct dosage and duration...but not needed long term or recommended.....

Ditto on that.
Couldn't have said it better if I tried
