    1 teaspoon per 10 gallons is not a lot. The fish will have other problems before it gets too high.

    Think of a TDS value of 50ppm as being a new coffee filter and a TDS value of 400ppm as a used coffee filter. The new coffee filter allows coffee to flow through it faster. The used coffee filter allows coffee to flow through at a much slower rate. In order to get the same flow rate, you have to use more pressure on the coffee to get it through the used coffee filter.
    This example dosent sound right to me.Salt that increase the concentration of the fluid will "encourage" a dilute urine to flow , since the urine i more diluted then the water with the salt the osmossis pressure willcause the urine to flow better. i dont understand why and how it will act like a barrier
