Hi all, I'm wanting to setup a brackish tank and I'm assuming a few things so correct me if I'm wrong.
Shrimps will be ok
Live bearers will be ok
Nerites I love and would transfer some and they May have young ?
What concentration of salt / gallon or ltr would you advise ?
I also assume tropical plants are out, so what would you advise please.
Many thanks, I haven't a clue but maybe one of you guys has tried it ?

Most Livebearers don't need salt, they just need a GH above 200ppm. However, you can use salt to treat them for some external diseases.

If you want to set up a brackish tank, why not put brackish fish in there? Livebearers and shrimps are fresh water fish.
