Mixing Marine Salt in with Fresh Water, not Fresh Water Salt. Bringing it to at least 1.009. Yes, thats how its done.

No. You mix MARINE SALT in Fresh Water to make Brackish Water.

Just find marine salt known as ROCK SALT.

They are crushed like iodize salt, Just measure your tank and compute for the amount of salt needed for the tank to be brackish. done

Thats how Bracksih water is made in Nature. Fresh Water Mixes with Sea Water at river inlets, thats Real World Brackish Water. And if yoiu want real worl Brackish Water conditions, you use MARINE SALT. Example- Reef Crystals, Instant Ocean etc. Not ROCK SALT. No way, No How.
