  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I've been entertaining the idea of breeding Indian Whisker shrimp, Amano shrimp and Nerite snails. These all have larval stages in common. I was wondering about keeping a brackish and freshwater quarantine tank always on each about 3 gallons so they are conditioned and covered in algae/diatoms...

    I have had this 4G vase for a couple of years now. It has a nice, solid construction and an interesting footprint. I originally set it up with a fountain in mind. There is a pond pump in the bottom with a custom egg crate and screen cage built around it. It is surrounded with filter floss...

    Hey guys, I've decided to jump into the salt section of the hobby and go brackish. I have tons of media that I've used to help jump start other freshwater cycles before, but not sure if it would work for brackish. The fish I want requires a low gravity (1.005-1.008), so the salinity isn't...

    Thinking of getting some opae ula and converting a tank to brackish. Does anyone keep these?
  5. Lighting
    I'm looking into setting up a brackish mangrove tank but am finding it impossible to find any information on their lighting needs :mad: I was looking at a 30 or 40 gallon, preferably a breeder, for this new project. I'd also prefer an LED fixture for the long term cost benefits. Anybody have any...

    Hello, I'm currently in the midst of aquascaping a densely planted 10g tank and I'd like to get some advice on my future stock list. This will be my first attempt at a brackish tank, though I intend to keep it at a low salinity, roughly 1.002-1.003 SG. My original intention was to keep...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi, first time posting on this site :) I'm redoing a shrimp tank for my mother (she loves looking at them but hates anything to do with tank maintenance--go figure, messing around with the filter ever few weeks is part of the fun of having a fish tank). We're going to go with the Hawaiian opae...

    I have a mixture of plants, was thinking about getting some mollies and well they need brackish water.do plants tolerate this? Or scrap molly idea?
  10. Fish
    My bumblebee gobies have lost their brilliant yellow color over the last couple weeks since I bought them and one of them is now see-through (ie clear) where its yellow bands used to be and I'm not sure why. They are the freshwater tolerant variety and I am keeping them in a freshwater tank...
  11. Fish
    So, I have been planning to get a pea puffer for my 10 gallon with plants, (swords, java fern, crypts) and I noticed that my LFS has them in brackish water, (1.005). I have known pea puffers to be specifically freshwater, and when I asked about it, they said that theirs are not freshwater, and...

    I was unable to find anything definitive on whether or not it could be done. So, I did it. And I have had success so far: 10% Salt water, reef mix; 80F; 3 GSP; 100s of Snail shells. My bacopa is THRIVING. Spiral Vals are stunted, but still reproducing/ spreading. Baby Tears are doing...
  13. Planted Nano Tanks
    Jake's 2.5g Mangrove "Estuary" I have been craving some salt over the last three months, but I did not want to go way out of my current comfort zone: Planted. This is when I saw an awesome two awesome ripariums. (Thanks Devin and The-Person-Who-Is-On-A-Different-Forum!) It clicked: 2.5g...
  14. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Ok so right now i have a fresh water 20L and lately I've been looking into setting up a brackish nano tank. However I have very little knowledge on the matter and cant seem to find a whole lot of answers to my questions. Mainly would this setup require equipment/maintenience similar to a...
  15. Tank Journals
    Well, it's been over a year since I first talked about doing a mangrove tank here. The build itself took a couple months as I didnt have the time to work on it one day after the other. Anyway, it's a 65 gallon tank with a foam/concrete background and some large manzanita branches inverted (and...
