  1. Question Plants that will thrive in brackish water?

    0 Not allowed!
    I have a brackish water tank with aprox salinity of 1.015, varies little depending on where in the week I am with changes, all levels are ideal, no problems with the tank, been running great for over a year. It is strictly for my puffer who I have had for just as long, along with some guppies who just keep breeding. My question is what are good natural decor I can put in this tank, puffer likes it when I change things around, and besides driftwood and shells, everything else I get dies quickly. I had given up but thought some people on here might know of plants that will do well in the partial salinity.

    I just did a quick Google search of Brackish plants and lots are listed there. I don't know what ones are brackish myself.

    Ive tried following what some of those sites say, and either my salt content is too high or too low for most, that's why I was wondering if anyone had experience with ones that will thrive in a wide range and are easily established.

    Ok now don't quote me on this, as I've never researched it. I live near the albemarle sound in north Carolina which is a brackish body of water. I have often seen a plant that very closely resembles cabomba carolininia(sp?) So certain species of cabomba might be worth looking into.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
