I heard it was ok to add salt in the water to clean it better, do I really need to add salt? How much would I need to add? Thanks for your help.

I don\'t think salt has anything to do with clean water, saltwater tanks have the same problem with algae as freshwater tanks do.:D

its a good idea to add salt because it keeps the water clean and clear from fungus\'s. go to the store and buy freshwater slat, its about 3 dollars. put a tablespoon for every ten gallons of water that you have.

good luck
