Re: How do I make brackish water for 1 Fancy Guppy, 1 Wild guppy and 1 nerite snail?
Brackish in water cycles can be tricky. Really what you need to figure out first is what level of brackish water the guppies can tolerate. The nerite can handle marine conditions so no worries there. And get some salt
and a bucket, you will also need a hydrometer. This will help measure the amount of salt
in your water. You will need to slowly add the salt water. Every other day add water that's a little stronger. Keep a close eye on salinity. Its not a difficult transition and your guppies will actually thrive in brackish water. But it will go through a cycle while new bacteria that can handle salt grow.
