| | Salt tolerance of my plants?
I've got a tank that's cycling that's going to be the new home for my goldfish once the cycle has completed. However, while its cycle has not completed yet (ammonia is gone but nitrItes are still hovering at 1-2 ppm), the other tank has nitrites popping up again. I've got salt in the tank to protect the fish from Brown Blood disease, but I was wondering if I might not be better switching tanks once the new tank's nitrites fall to lower than the current tank's. But if I do that, I'll have to treat the new tank with salt as well. The question, then, is if the following plants can handle water with a 0.3-0.5% salt content:
