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 :)
