If they are brackish it's the first I've ever heard of that. He may be misinformed, rather than BS'n.

The gouramis have been in the tank for about 2 days. They seem to be ok.

Hi Sageo, I have several opalines and all my fish are in brackish and they are fine. I recommend you keep them in that, if you see them rocking back and forth you need to add a little more salt. Hope that was some help.

I have never heard of the Opaline being brackish and I have been keeping fish for 20 years but on the same note I know that a lot of gouramis can cope with the conditions but I would watch them closly and if they start showing stress remove them. I find that in the great Fish world no two fish are the same and no two fish react the same to water conditions on many occasions. Good luck

I think maybe theres a confusion between adding aquarium salt and brackish water?

I've had employees at a LFS tell me aquarium salt, not marine salt, will make you water "brackish"
