View Full Version : Settting up Brackish tank

10-13-2012, 03:11 AM
I was thinking about taking the gravel out of my 25 gallon aquarium and replacing it with pool filter sand and putting the small brackish flounder and bumblebee gobbie in the tank. I at present time have some baby mollies, ghost shrimp and a small bristlenose in the tank, will probably put these in my peacock eel tank.
Just wanted to know besides having the gobies and flounder are there any other good fish to put in tank besides mollies? The tank has been set up since May so it has a well seeded filtration system.

I just changed my tank to brackish a few weeks ago. If you slowly acclimate your fish, you can put almost anything in there, depending on how high or low of a salt level you want to keep.

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong - I'm just speaking from my experiences.

Colombian sharks are one of the breeds that immediately come to mind when I hear brackish.

Columbian sharks are also the opposite of acceptable for a 25G aquarium. I have a 225G brackish tank and I don't think I have the room for it.

Unfortunately there are not too many small brackish fish that are readily available. The only other small ones I can think of are puffers, which will eat the other inhabitants.

Glass fish maybe?
