Fine, no issues there. I was concerned about your initial post on this, but now after reading the article and re-reading your post, I thihnk I misunderstood. I had thought you were suggesting from this article that long-term use of salt was being recommended.
But far from it. Nathan Hill is confirming what I have been saying in that article and elsewhere, that long-term or regular use of salt in a freshwater aquarium has no beneficial effects, and can be very dangerous particularly to some fish. Salt used as a specific treatment for a specific issue, like ich, is another matter, though with salt-sensitive fish (which is basically all soft water fish) there are better remedies with fewer side effects.
Thanks for the link.
