How to go from brackish to freshwater without recycling
I have decided to move away from my brackish tank and go over to a freshwater. However I really want to try to avoid having to recycle the tank, I know Molly's do ok in brackish water, if I put some in and gradually reduced the SG over a few weeks would my bacteria in my tank gradually adjust? Also I have driftwood in there, would it have absorbed the salt from the water? I am thinking of gradually reducing the salt and once back to fresh water, washing out the gravel (in conditioned water) and the ornaments to remove the salt
Will I cycle again or should the Molly's prevent this, and how many would I need?
