Is it recommended to quarantine them before introducing them to your goldies?

And, will salt harm them like it does to slugs--makes them melt/dissolve into

goo.

Some levels of aquarium salt are safe for them but Im not sure how much and I never wanted to take that chance! Just to be safe I'd recommend quarantining them because they can carry parasites. Also be very careful when medicating your fish. Any ich/parasite medicine or antibiotic can kill them.

check info on applesnail.net

I have not had a problem with using small amounts of salt in the tank as a tonic but I never put in as much as they call for.

Also - I have used Melafix with my snail in the tank and have not had a problem - it says on the packaging that it's safe for snails and other invertebrates. Good luck!
