salt and scaless fish

I know normally you wouldn't necessarily want to put salt in with Otos and loaches but can they tolerate it for a week or 2? And if so how much would be recommended?? I am switching meds and thought the Platys would especially benefit from a little salt.

Tonic levels should be fine...most fish stores use salt...I use salt...

...if you're worried, add the salt water very slowly...

Fishkeeping wish: That every betta sold finds himself at least a 5g tank...

Wanting better for bettas...

I'd dissolve the salt first before introducing it to the tank. Any grains of salt can burn their skin most unfortunately.
