Advice regarding my Monodactylus Argenteus

Advice regarding my Monodactylus Argenteus please .

I purchased 4 small ones - bit bigger than a 50 pence piece - and the store INSISTED that they should be kept in FRESHWATER not BRACKISH .

After checking for hours on the internet - everywhere else recommends adding a little aquarium / marine salt to keep them happy.


If I persist with freshwater will they simply die a slow death or what ??

Increase salinity by .001 per week as they mature until you can reach it to high end. Don't persist on FW. While juveniles do thrive in FW, salinity must be increased as they mature. Adults are SW.

In freshwater they will not be as healthy and will die very early. It pretty much would end up dying a slow death. They need to be in SW when they are adults, so just keep increasing the salinity.
