Question Will Aquarium Salt Kill My Plant?

Need to deal with a potential Fin Rot problem. Among other remedies (e.g. Melafix), a dose of aquarium salts was recommended. I have only one live plant in the tank right now... a banana plant. Will it be harmed by the salt?

Actually, Banana Plants are one of a few that can tolerate some salt. Usually low levels, and the amount of aquarium salt used to treat fin-rot is pretty low.

If you're worried, or if it starts looking a tad stressed out, you can actually remove the plant to a small bucket of treated water, get a C02 boost for it though, or it might die. You can keep it in a bucket for the whole treatment so long as you change out a bit of water here and there and give it the c02 boost and some light. You can even add in a bit of liquid fertilizer to be safe, and I suggest you do since there wont be much to "Feed" on in a bucket.
