    Like any tank, you'll want to check temperature, size, and tank mate compatibility on each fish. Some of these also require different sg levels; though they're all brackish, some prefer just a little salt and others prefer nearly marine levels. Most brackish fish are fairly adaptable within reason.

    I can't recall if there's any info about inverts in those links. I know ghost shrimp (aka glass shrimp) thrive in fw or brackish. I have snails in my brackish - mts maybe. Fiddler crabs, red claw crabs, patriot crabs, etc. are brackish, but not fully aquatic.

    I read about a million links and asked loads of questions before I set mine up. There's just not a lot of info out there for brackish lovers. Always cross- and double- check anything you read about brackish fish. There's a lot of misinformation out there because people try to force fw conditions on these fish. Feel free to ask whatever questions come up. :)

    Olive nerite snails will also do well in BW tanks, I believe.
