CAN i use ORS in fish tank
Greetings to all.
Well, today i was going thru the ingredients of ORS (Oral Rehydration Salts) sachet, when this question popped into my mind...Can i use ORS in fresh water fish tank for both plants and fish. I am no expert, so i thought of getting some expert opinion of u ppl.
The ingredients f ORS generally are
trisodium citrate dihydrate
Guide me :)
well, you probably could... The problem is that the fish industry has you convinced that freshwater fish need salt.
They do not.
There are ingredients in that that should not be in a fish tank.
May I ask why you considered using this?
In my region, plant food is not actively available, neither some concentrates for balancing electrolytes.That is why i thought of using ORS. And the salts are basically for balancing electrolytes as some of my fish are sitting on tank floor with no apparent signs of any disease.
Salt is very detrimental to many fish, particularloy soft water species. If there is an issue with your fish, we can help you to identify it and with that find the best solution.
