Can freshwater beneficial bacteria transfer to brackish?

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 that high.

I understand using seeded media won't cycle it immediately, but it certainly does give it a boost.

Would i be able to use my seeded freshwater media to jumpstart a low gravity brackish aquarium? Any input ?

Thank you!

I mean it's just a tad bit of salt. It's only 1.006-1.008 compared to that of an actual marine tank.

Thanks so far for the input guys.
