    I’ve been talking to the girl in my LFS about some fish I’m interested in, they have both in a freshwater set up Stigmatogobius Sadanundio Knight Goby and Parambassis ranga Indian glass fish. When I asked about acclimatising them to brackish water, she said it was OK to do this the same way as you would with freshwater fish, ie floating the bag and every 15 mins or so remove some of the bag water replacing it with tank water

    Thanks for the info it made interesting reading, the girl at the LFS told me that neither fish needed brackish water although the goby would benefit from it it wasn’t essential. I just thought it was sales talk, looks like she was right

    I think Stigmatogobius need some salt for long-term success.
