conversion to full marine setup

Post by deckard1138 » Tue Dec 04, 2018 1:28 pm


I am wanting to slowly acclimate a brackish tank to full saltwater aquarium. My intention is to introduce marine fish (sunrise dottyback, and half
color dottybacks) to a tank with figure 8 puffers.

Thank you for your consideration,

F8s are ONLY low-end BW. If you want to do something like this, it's better with GSPs. There are lots of cool BW fish you could keep with the F8s though. How large is the tank?
