    say you purchased a fish that was labeled freshwater such as the green spotted puffer and purchased it from someone who had it in a freshwater aquarium, obviously its a brackish fish. how do i safely transfer a freshwater fish to a brackish aquarium?

    I don't know brackish well but the key to transitioning fish is to take it slow. Increase the salitnity level gradually until you reach the desired level
