Yep, you're right about the siphon and bucket, so they aren't totally independent systems so it's possible some introduced pathogen has been shared. What the something is is the question.

True, salt doesn't evaporate, but it does come out when I do water changes. I'm adding a tbsp per 5 gal at water changes which is a drop in the bucket (pardon the pun), and concentration shouldn't increase. Anyhow, a little aquarium salt is pretty normal as a general tonic (and generally helpful in cases of illness). Given the pattern, it seems I'm dealing with a pathogen, not an environmental toxin - could be wrong but it seems that way.

Since you are using the same equipment on both tanks it might be in internal parasite.
