Looking for fish to stock my tank with!
So here's my list I want to go with so far to add to my Dragon Goby, Freshwater flounder, and 2 bumblebee gobies. 3 archer fish (the smaller Toxotes microlepis species), 1-2 Columbian Sharks, and about 5 nerite snails. Possibly a few red nose shrimp if I can ever find them. Any other ideas or any clues where to purchase these guys at?

your best bet would probably be online. probably the only place to buy them in person would be if you had an excotic fish store because petco, petsmart, ect. don';t carry them. Even if the do i wouldnt recomend buying them there because they dont keep their fish in brackish

I've done all my fish seeking online and I've yet to find a LFS with a brackish section. Most of the few that I've been to have any knowledge at all about brackish aquariums. But I've successfully acclimated everything in my tank (Dragon Goby, Bumblebee Gobies, Freshwater Flounders, and a Ropefish). The only problems was with the ropefish. He died several days after acclimation. But with a missing bumblebee goby, I'm thinking he ate it and then died of causes resulting. I have a tank dedicated to quarantining and the slow acclimation of any fish that is to be added to my main display. So as long as I have an interest in the fish and they CAN be brackish, all it takes is time.
