View Full Version : Brackish to Salt

Anyone ever converted their tank from brackish to salt for the benefit of your puffers (i.e., GSP's).

Over what timeframe should this occur?

Any reliable links to transition info?

I know your never supposed to change the salinity quickly. Only bad things happen fast with saltwater tanks. What salinity do you keep a brackish tank at? Salt tanks are usually at 1.026 SG.

I dripped my 1.009 46 gal GSP tank for 3 months.. Every 2 weeks (15-20 days). 10 gal water change, maybe a little less and I put salt in it everytime I did a water change and everytime I did that, I added a half a cup of salt to the SW I was putting in there... Now it's 1.020 and they're all doing great! Just remember, once a month.. Add some ph because it goes down as you add more salt and they're not used to that..

Happy tanking :)
