I wouldn't thrash your filter, if you're intent on cleaning the tank then place the filter on another tank and keep it running and cycled.

the other thing that is different is when removing clorine i used to use aquaclear which removed clorine and promoted slime coat now i just been using these drops that just removed clorine so maybe i'll switch back for good measure.

The only chemical you will want to use in your tank is Seachem Prime. It's pretty much an all in one, dechlorinator, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate detoxifier, and provides slime coat.

okey, i will just share my primitive way of understanding salt...
i grew up in the countryside of poor country wherein medicine is unknown
to man... whenever we had deep wound (either cuts from works
or accident) we just allow the wounded to be soaked to sea water 1 to
2 hours a day...dress the wounds and rest... no anti biotics nor anti
inflammation... but the wound heals just the same...

now i can not understand why salt will be bad to wounded fresh water
fish???? moderation is the name of the game...anything too much is bad!!!

I completely agree with Draco here... Salt has it's place, and it's uses..
There is just no need to use it all the time.
