Alright...I mean if you remove 5 gallons from a 75 gallons in the process of doing water changes, you'll need to dose another tablespoon again.:)
I hope that helps.:) I was under the impression however that some planted tank enthusiasts often frown on salt because it does damage plants on temporary basis hence they often resort to medications instead. I'd be careful with medicines. Most of them can do far more damage than salt by destroying the bacteria thus causing mini cycles.
