    thanks for the tip angel.

    Been keeping a constant eye on the levels within my ten gallon tank. Over the last couple of days they seem to have balanced out within the system of the tank. I had been adding some Fluval Cycle to the tank to help with building up the beneficial bacteria in the tank.

    Ammonia-0
    Nitrates- 5
    Nitrites- between .25 and .5
    Ph- 7

    Are these levels ok within the tank?

    Adding 1 teaspoon of salt per 10 gallons everyday would be enough protect the fish from nitrite poisoning.

    As far as I know, platies still benefit (even enjoy) a bit of salt in their water, so you're safe to use it in your tank. Keep an eye out for failing live plants, you might want to remove the chainsword and crypts and move them to a salt -free container until this is all over. The java fern can handle quite a bit of salt. Just something to watch as rotting plants can cause issues too. I just wanted to let you know, salt does not evaporate from the water. The only way to remove salt is to remove the water via water changes. This is important when wanting to keep a certain salinity level.

    What should a proper salinity level be within a ten gallon tank?

    Ooops, my head's been a bit foggy, platies don't NEED salt!
    The proper salinity level is to protect the fish from nitrite poisoning. Sorry if it came across another way. I meant...platies tolerate salt well, so there is no worry using salt to protect from nitrate poisoning. The salt is a temporary thing while your nitrites disappear. Rocksor said 1 teaspoon everyday to protect from nitrite poisoning. Do you still detect nitrites?
