I just did a waterchange and I added 1 tablespoon of aquarium salt for every 5 gallons. Now they are breathing very fast. Is this normal? This never happend to my caribe. I know pirayas are more water sensitive. Do you think I added to much salt?

they could be just stressed after the change i have seen my pygos do this after some changes .
why did you add salt have you any other problems i would only add it if my p's have problems or if i get planaria in the tank.
your p's could build up a tolerence to salt enough to stop it working for when you need it most with problems.
