To convert them I'm pretty sure you just gradually have to raise the salinity. I have never done it before though. If it is an aggressive tank there is a chance that the smaller weaker fish will get eaten/picked on, depending what fish there is.

What fish do you have in the brackfish tank, and what is the setup? Filter, Substrate, Decor....etc

Are you trying to convert all the fish in the tank to saltwater? I know that by topping off with salt water you can raise the salinity gradually with a saltwater tank and I am pretty sure if you start topping off with saltwater in a brackish tank you can do the same.

Measure your salinity daily when doing this so you don't make it raise to fast.
