I need to salt my 46 gallon but as I started adding the salt suddenly I thought "Oh wat about my pleco?". He's a 1 inch albino bristlenose pleco, can he tolerate salt? I stopped adding it as soon as I saw him but I wanna get the salt in asap but also dont wanna remove him from the tank..but if I have to.... they're ok with prazi right? Cuz i added that a few days ago and didnt even think about that!

According to www.plecofanatics.com, plecos can tolerate up to 0.15% salt but no more. I would guess that a small albino might be more sensitive than a gigantic common pleco. I wouldn't go any higher that 0.1% with a pleco in the tank.

ok so 46 teaspoons right? thats all i was gonna add anyway, so u think he'll b alright if I add it slowly? Or maybe i'll just add half of it first and see how he does?
