Sorry, just read the last bit about salt. I can't help there but if you send through how much you added, when and what type; I'm sure someone will know.

Ok, well I did some reading last night (but bearing in mind I have never used it), options I found are: leave the plants in and if not too badly wilting, etc they should recover when you do a fresh water change (a couple of articles), or take plants out (quite a few articles) or take the fish out and put in a QT tank (also quite a few articles). Generally it seems freshwater plants and salt don't go well. Also the rate of salt add looked fine for more sensitive fish such as catfish and loaches. You can't do a topic search on the phone app but you can on the website in case that helps.

Thanks my plants seem to be ok at the moment not got any worse apart from the fish eating them faster than they can grow
