Brackish Water Parasites?

Spidey

Hey everybody!

I have a brackish tank that I have had set up for about a year now, and it got me thinking: what kinds of parasites could survive in there? I know marine flukes and ich would die at that salinity (1.008) because that is about where people drop their salinity to for hyposalinity treatment in saltwater aquariums. I also know that freshwater ich is not exactly fond of salt, just like many other freshwater ailments (i.e. fungus). Has anybody ever seen anything in their tank? I'm starting to wonder if brackish tanks are the perfect aquarium...

There are varieties of Marine Oodinium & Ich that probably could exist in a brackish environment.
