Firstly accept my thanks for accepting me in this nice forum. My name is Ashish, I am from India (Mumbai) I have been a fish enthusiast since I was a child. I am 49 years now and I get more free time so my old hobby has come to my aid. Now I would like to professionally breed fishes and make it an another source of income. I would like you.. My new friends to guide me in this passion of mine which will become my profession or business in near future.
I have a question.. I add some sea salt to the aquarium water after cleaning it and changing water. I would like to have natural plants in my aquarium but the plants wither away due to salt content. So, What is the solution. For breeding fish I will require lots of water plants. So What can I do??

Welcome to the forum.
In regards to your question, why are you even adding salt to the water in the first place? if you are keeping marine fish, then you wouldn't be adding plants to the tank.
if you are breeding freshwater fish, then there is no need for salt in a healthy tank. salt has its uses when a fish is sick or when water quality is bad (as it masks the effects of ammonia and nitrite)
but with freshwater fish, constant salt levels, especially in levels that even wilt plants, are harmful to fish too.
