hello all, I need your advise, I do 20% water change twice week in my 33 gal tank for guppies. After every water change I am adding one tablespoon of salt that is ok for freshwater tanks. Can I add live plants like Java fern or moss to this tank or would it be a waste of money? Thanks for any advise

Java fern is one of the plants that survived a salt treatment I had to do for Ick.
I have a bunch I just pulled from my tank. It's in a bucket outside. Has been for a few days. It's probably still thriving. You can have it if you want to try and see if it will survive your tank. I was going to just throw it in the garden. PM me your cell and I'll text you my address. I'm in Delta. Near 120 & 64th.

I used to add aquarium salt during weekly water change and salt has no effect on my java fern, Limnophila sessiliflora, different crypts, moss, rotatla wallichi. I have to stop using salt otherwise my chihiro fish doctor won't work with salt. (Chinese knock off version of twin star.)

You need to check if your fish can take the salt, than again my cory and oto had no problem with the salt I added even some suggest they can't stand any salt at all.

A tablespoon isn't enough to make the water too briny for your plants.
