just because they come from freshwater, they are brakish inhabitents, so to ensure that they live to the appropriate age and stay healthy, they should be converted to a brakish tank. They should be slowly acclimated to the brakish water. Dont go and change from fresh to brakish immediately. You should slowly increase the salinity as not to put them into shock. Most brakish inhabitents can be converted to freshwater, however, as previously stated, they will not live their normal life expectency....

just as a side note and reminder as i am all of a sudden seeing numerous posts on the mudskipper.....please besure to do your research before you decide to get them. As i see all too often that people get pets because they are "popular" for that time and when the fad wears off the pets are left to suffer
