ending salt treatment for ich question?

Next week, I will be done with the salt thing in treating ich. So, my question is if I do a 50% water change and add fW, isn't there still salt in the water? How will this impact my mystery snail if I put him back in the tank?

I also want to get things back to "normal" for my live plants, but I'm wondering how this effects everything, after salt has been put in tank. Is it no big deal, because the amount is diluted?

Any suggestions?? Thanks so much!!

25 gal
3 Dwarf Rainbows
3 ghost shrimp
1 mystery snail
5 Danios
Lots of live plants

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

Try to do series of small water changes to gradually remove the salt. No need to worry about the salt. Just don't add salt and continue water changes. It'll eventually be taken off completely.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
