Tran, stop adding the salt. Salt on long term basis can permanently damage the fish's body system. If you study the osmoregulation system long enough, you will know why freshwater fish eventually fall ill by adding salt for a long time. Furthermore, you are only wasting time and money just for salt. There is no "health benefit" from adding it except for treatments only.

As of now I keep the tank at 76-78 F. pH around 6.8-7.0. nitrate at around 0-.25 ppm (mg/L). Theres also a little salt in the tank, just about 1 tbs per ten gallons. Hope thats enough info, thanks. :D
