We are just getting started in raising Tilapia. We have heard that the use of NaCl or salt will help with high nitrite levels and also aid in helping to prevent diseases. Is this true? We have a four hundred gallon tank with about 70 tilapia that are 1-2 inches long. How much salt should be added if any. A response would be appreciated. Thank You.
