I'm really not sure if the salt would hurt the turtle or not, I would think that if the salinity was TOO high it could sting their eyes and possible damage the kidneys, but I doubt that normal levels of "aquarium salt" (as opposed to "marine salt & sea levels of salinity) would do that. It's not something I would want to try without doing a lot more research, and honestly I wouldn't do it for the simple reason that the way my turtle tank is set up I have a huge amount of evaporation from the tank. I already get a lot of "water stains" on my tank glass...it would be 10x worse w/ the salt. Just in 20 gallon fish tank that I do use salt in, I actually have to scrape crusted salts off the hood all the time
