    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 use salt in all of my tanks, been doing it for years. do not use salt that contain iodide, why i do not know. going by some of my books iodide can be use to treat certain things in the aquarium. catfish do not like salt . either do plec, so make sure you know what you doing!!!

    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.
