"fresh" water Moray eel salt help!
I just obtained a "freshwater" moray eel to quickly find out that the fish store had NO idea what they were talking about! I know there is no such thing as a freshwater moray eel and that they are either brackish or full marine. Its gold and extremely stunning, they said he was eating but I know with out salt that wouldn't have lasted too long. Luckily I am not a beginner and I know how to care for him. BUT I have yet to come across what type of salt to use! I don't know whether I should use marine salt or the "freshwater" salt they sell for freshwater tanks. Hes in my 20g freshwater tank for now until I get another one set up for him. Truly a unique species! Do have saltwater tanks but im sure he would eat my smaller fish anyone have any tips, hints on keeping these guys? Havnt seen any like him, only grows about 2ft or less. Pet store sold him as 100% freshwater, bad people!
Use marine salt. This one has buffering properties required to replicate the marine conditions. Upgrade your tank and see if Craiglist has bargains for that. Do you have a refractometer already? Make sure your test kits are designed for brackish to saltwater tanks.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
