parasites such as ich.  To treat this, add 1/5 cup of salt to every to 10 gallons of aquarium water in a

separate container.  Place your infected cichlids into this container for 5- 10 minutes and remove them

from the container and place them back into your aquarium.  Repeat in 24 hours, if necessary.

Salt can temporarily block the  toxic effects of high nitrate levels and stress on your cichlids   and protect them until

 the water quality improves in your African Cichlids water . 

 

Following these steps of adding salt to your African Cichlids water can help to reduce stress, get rid of ich, aid in high
