Please help me. Do I put salt in the water? I know the fish I want are not saltwater fish but some sites say to put some salt in the water. Do I need to put a air pump in the water? The tank is in a corner no window around it.

Study up on the nitrogen cycle before you add fish. Save you and your fish a hard time. Basics- Fish exhale and excrete pure ammonia, which will kill them in short order. With an ammonia source , bacteria will grow that makes the water safe. Ask here if you have questions.
