They may appreciate it but in general, you don't need it. Provided your hardness levels and pH are high at 150 ppm and over and 7.6 and above respectively, that's fine. They just cannot tolerate the opposite end of the water conditions.

If your source already accustomed them to brackish water conditions, then stick to brackish water conditions. They can tolerate it up to high end marine conditions. It's harder to acclimate them the opposite way as the hyposalinity must be done gradually to avoid shocking the fish from the sudden dip of electrolytes by the salt.

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.
