Freshwater fish acclimation to Salt water
 
Besides Molly's and Puffers... are there other fish that can be acclimated to live in a salt water tank?

Water should test zero for ammonia and nitrites and nitrAtes should be twenty or below for healthy fish. Filtration should include healthy bacteria population, and be properly sized for your tank and properly maintained by rinsing out the filter material during weekly water changes in old aquarium water or dechlorinated water. I would see that all of the above is as it should be and keep an eye on the fish.

hay all thanks for all the help, just tested my water today, my Nitrate, Nitrite, and Ammonia all are at 0 and my PH= 7. I thank my Bactria is good cus this tank has been cycling for about 5 mouths.

hi
if the tank has been doing the cycle for 5 months and you have readings like that
i think ther's something wrong ?
amonia 0 yes.
nitrite 0 yes
nitrates would be good in the low readings.
he looks healthy to me,pretty fish !
