Is it safe to add aquarium salt to a planted tank?

Is it safe to add aquarium salt to a planted tank? Will the plants be okay?

If so, how much should I add to a 5.5g for my Betta?

I checked the stickies out but couldn't find this information. Sorry if I missed it!

It's safe but I wouldn't add any. Bettas don't need it and neither do the plants. Save it for if your fish gets sick, it will be more effective if you don't use it all the time ;)

aquarium salt will kill some plants and it isnt needed long term if your fish is healthy....I only use aquarium salt if my fish is ill...then I either float him in a smaller container or put him into a smaller quarantine tank for treatment. i premix the aquarium salt 1 tsp per gallon in gallon water jugs for doing water changes on the floated container or quaratine tank..

Okay thanks. For some reason I had it in my head that they should have it in their tank all the time.
