    Why do you need to add salt.

    It might affect your other fish. How depends on exactly which fish you keep.
    You shouldn't use any salt that contain iodide.

    I can't say for sure since I still haven't figured out which species you have bought that they called trident sharks. My guess is that it will work as long as you keep the salinity low. (raise the salinity slowly)

    You can also read our article about peacock eels
    Don't know if it will tell you anything new.
