    my lfs owner today suggested i put "a little bit of salt" in with my discus to keep them happy. what are the benefits of adding salt to a freshwater tank? how much aquarium salt is adequate for a 50 gallon tank?

    none. except for medicating the tank fw fish do not need salt and especially discus.

    +1 - some LFS's will salt their tanks, but everything I've read here says unless you are using salt for medicinal reasons, there is no need to use it regularly for FW fish.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in
