Brackish Water Plants?

Post  ShortyKiloGyrl on 2014-04-04, 12:25

Can anyone give me advice/pointers on some brackish water plants? I am wanting to add some to my puffers tank and they need to be able to with stand snails. Any advice would be awesome. I can't seem to find much online about many brackish plants.

Interesting topic. No experience, but a quick search sent me here:

Sounds like most plants will acclimate. I would start with cryptocoryne as the melt and return would be a pretty clear sign of acclimation. Let me know what you find!!!

Great thanks. I hadn't come across that. I have found a few sites that sell brackish plants.

My crispus is doing amazingly well in this brackish tank, for just shoving some random plants in so far I've only lost the purple cabomba plants! Still have the dracaena even, with no die off!

Yeah, cabomba is super delicate... relatively speaking. I'm not surprised the dracaena is surviving. Hope it turns out well! I've done a ton of research on them in aquariums, and still nothing but hearsay about them being truly bad for the fish tank. I am still treating them carefully tho. Keep us posted on how that goes too!

Will do, I guess they aren't supposed to be fully submersed but are doing fine so far. Maybe the salinity has an effect on it?
