I have a 37 gallon freshwater tank that was heavenly planted. I decided to get a green spotted puffer. I knew the puffer was a brackish fish, so before I bought her I transitioned to brackish. My special Gravity was 1.004 and I changed it to 1.010 within 3 hours. All of my plants except for 2 died. The ones that barely made it barely survived. I did not realize that you had to acclimate plants as well. So I tried doing my research to find out which plants can live in brackish water. I bought some crypt wendtii. Drip acclimated them for 1.5 hours and they also died I used to love how all of my plants were so full and this tank was so lovely and green. Now switching to brackish I can't keep anything to stay alive or thrive. I dose with Seachem Flourish and my substrate is play sand. Any advice on which plants do well in brackish and how to properly acclimate plants? Thanks!
