I'm with you, Dave.  I prefer calcium carbonate to baking soda, and there are 
a number of other salts that add useful stuff without increasing the sodium 
or chloride content.  Chloride in and of itself doesn't threaten fish like 
chlorite compounds or dissolved chlorine gas.  Still, I like to keep my 
NaCl-salinity under control.
