Caring for Brackish Plants

Post by Cel »

Hi there,

I'm setting up a tank for a GSP and want to have some live healthy plants in there for it. Does anyone have links or tips on how to keep brackish plants healthy and that won't negatively effect your GSP? What water supplement do any of you recommend to feed the plants?

I currently have a Hygrophila, Java Moss, Anacharis (Water Weeds), and one Marimo ball.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi, What SG is your puffer at now & what is your goal for this?

Thank you for the link! My salinity is at 1.008 but I may need to get it lower. I still need to find out from the store what level their keeping the tank at. I do know that they are keeping their GSP's in Brackish water, so that's great.

GSPs eventually need high-end BW: 1.015-18
