    Well it is my own fault, an impulse buy I suppose you could say. I ran in today to get filters for my fluvel and there was a blue dragon goby by himself in a small tank. I am in the process of restocking a 125 gal tank and just have a big pleco, 2 nickel sized angels and 5 small rams. I was told he was a gentle shy fish and would be great with these other fish. I asked about diet, adult size, water temp. and parameters etc. After I got him home and researched him on the internet I realized he was not even a fresh water fish but a brackish water fish. I cant take him back and I want to try and do the best for him so I am going to set up my other tank (a 75 gl bowfront) as a brackish tank and move that tanks inhabitants (2 blood parrots and 5 cories) to the big tank. ok here are my questions . How would I accliimitize this fish to go into a brackish tank? What other tankmates could he have? I think that mollies are or can be brackish but I know they are housed in fresh water at the lfs. I know that some puffers are brackish (there is a figure 8 at the pet store kept in freshwater) My goal is to have a varied, colorful and lively tank. Please help with suggestions. Oh in case it might make a difference I have a sand substrate.
