Oscar's in Brackish?

Postby Marcus_rossa » Wed Dec 29, 2010 10:37 am

hello,

Does anybody know if a pair of Oscar's will live happily in Brackish water?

Im tempted to get a "freshwater Moray eel" but i know as they grow older they require Brackish water, also does anybody have any experiance with Moray eels? i've done some research and have had a few qustions answerd but need to be atleast 99% sure its what i want, The Breed i'm after i believe is called a "snowflake Moray"

Many thanks...

ok, keeping them in freshwater is fine with me.
Do you know much about the "freshwater moray's"? ive read a few posts now about them and the majority say they require about 1.010 saltinity but a few have had success in freshwater tanks.
