I use my old saltwater to kill weeds as well. I want to try using diluted as fertilizer, but don't produce large amounts of skim. Diluted water after water changes might be my best go.

When diluting it 10:1 you don't need to produce much ,
Mine is a little wet but still stinks and very concentrated

There should be little salt in the skim and if you still wanted to be safe, just dilute it down.. You won't have any problems

The amount of salt in the skim will not hurt the plants. Plants actually need a certain amount of sodium to be able to take up nitrogen. Skim should be a great source of proteins and minerals for plants in the same way that manure is.
