View Full Version : Is a black Moore brackish?

I have always had a couple teaspoons of aquarium salt in my 50g. Added a black moore and wondering if the salt will harm him. The others have been in there 2 yrs, no problem.

A few tsp in a tank does not brackish make.2-3 tbsp per gallon makes brack.And no, a black moor is not brack nor is any goldfish.

oh and aquarium salt isnt the right type of salt to make your tank brackish either

Like stated, black moors or any other goldfish are not brakish. Is there a reason you are adding salt to your tank? Unless treating for a problem there is no need for salt. And if you did want to make a brackish tank you would want marine salt as there is more to saltwater than just 'salt'.

i think this will help clear up any questions you may have about adding salt to your freshwater tank.

are you maybe confusing black moore with black molly? I remember seeing black mollies used to cycle the LFS' sw tanks before.
