Where to buy Brackish plants online in UK
 
Can anyone recommend somewhere I can buy brackish plants online in the UK as I'm having problems finding them?

There are many freshwater plants that are also brackish. I don't know what would happen if you bought them fw and took them up to brackish, though. Maybe someone else has bought plants as fwand taken them to brackish?

I've tried it and they just go brown and die :0( Something to do with the salt suffocating them

Many FW plants do great in brackish... You can't just dump them in the saltwater though.

If you place them in a FW tank and increase the salt gradually, they'll be okay.
