I've never heard of that Nick Bingo fella and your description of him causes me to not want to look him up lol.....anyhow, if I remember correctly the salt mix does evaporate with the water, it remains in the tank.Nick Bingo did it, but He is a butthole, and doesn't care about his fish. I think it could work if you take some precautions, such as the ammount of salt evaporating with the water, and the filter size. Indoors would be better. You could do native fish to my home, california. Round Ray, maybe surf perch.
