They're fully marine, not fresh water or brackish although i think they can live for a very short time in brackish water.

Tank size of 200g or larger I think would be appropriate and I don't think they bother corals so could be kept in a reef aquarium.

I'm not a salty person, so I can't tell you too much about them unfortunately. Maybe post in the SW section for more information on them?

Well the most common sold Moray as "Freshwater Moray" is the Common Dwarf Snowflake Moray.

These guys are born in freshwater, and as they get older they move into the sea. Depending on how large the fellow is, he'd be okay in the brackish for a while. but according to the information I've gathered, You'd want to start adding .001 salinity like... each day or every other until it becomes marine.
