I have a freshwater tank, 55 gallons with tiger barbs, tinfoil barbs, rainbow shark, bala shark, Pleco, and a pictus catfish.

I bought some java moss and Anabias. The planting guide that the seller sent me says to add 1 teaspoon of epson salt per gallon of water once a month to keep the plants green. Is this just for a planted tank with no fish???

I also have a silver tipped shark (catfish) or a Columbian catfish, After I added him to the tank I read they like brackish tanks.

Can I add aquarium salt to the tank to satisfy the silver tipped sharks, and hopefully it will not harm my other fish, also Will it harm me plants??
