salt, plants and dojo loaches

Some one suggested that I might try using salt at 0.1% to help heal my goldfish fins. Would this level of salt be ok for dojos, java moss/fern annubias, swords and crypt undulata?

Don't use salt. Use water changes. Clean water does more than salt could ever do.

50% water changes a few times per week and they'll be in heaven.

water changes are the best thing. if you must add something melafix is safe for everything but kinda pricey.

Thanks for the replys. I do 50% water changes weekly and will continue them. Just wanted to check, kinda what I thought. Have used melafix in the past, and was happy with the results (and I like the way it smells).might start doing 35ish% twice a week. Thanks
