    i belive most, if not all the BBG sold in stores can tolorate both brackish and freshwater. if you are unsure, always go to the low end of brackish. as all species can handle that. im not too sure how to tell the difference, they are many species of BBG out there, some have orange and black stripes, other have a bright yellow bands and some mucky yellow. they are slight variations between the colors, but nothing too clear. i would take my chances and put them in low brackish water.

    If the SG of brackish is 1.008, what would be the low end, 1.005?

    I started a BW (2mo now) with 6 bbg's and two kribs. My SG is at 1.010 (high) and 1.080 (low) All are doing fine. I use a refractometer to test.

    Hey Drum, 1.050 is a very low end of Bw.

    One thing good about a BW tank is that you don't have to have your SG exact every time as you do for a marine tank. BW ( any river that has a flow in/out from oceans) has flexuations in SG, so BW fish actually thrive in the ups and downs of the SG.

    One must be careful when starting a BW tank. You must take into consideration the tank size you have, for example: Scats commonly found in your lfs. Most people who purchase them do not know nor will the lfs tell you that Scats are BW or that they get to be "platter size".

    All BW fish will survive in FW for a while, but will not have the long life life they should have. Some Puffers, BBG's to name a few have shorter lives because of this.

    BW fish must have ocean salt and not aquarium salt. That seems to be the most misunderstood of those who take on a BW tank.
