Hello again D...
I use a couple of teaspoons of standard aquarium salt in every 5 gallons of my replacement water, so technically, I have brackish water tanks. I have a 45 G "biotope" tank, that doesn't really need water changes, just a water top off a couple of times a week (see attached pics). It uses land plants and the plant roots to filter out the water pollutants. I remove a few gallons of tank water every week to rinse out the filtration media, but that's it. The tank still needs the standard HOB
filtration to remove pollutants at night when the plants rest. Might be an option for putting off water changes in your tank with no harm done to the fish.
