Brackish tank keepers

Hi all

I'm writing to seek any other brackish tank keepers?

I currently have a 4 foot tank set up that includes:

dragon goby
3 x monos
2 x Mollies
1 archer
4 x shrimp

I'm thinking of adding the following:

2 x archer
2/3 x scats
1 x knight goby

Any feedback / ideas?

Mine aren't full grown yet so it's difficult for me to really give an opinion on the stock based on the aquarium size.. but if it was me I'd start with adding a few Knight Gobies and go from there. Maybe a Scat next.
I plan on taking my brackish community up to a 125 minimum, based on my Mono Sebae alone.

I do have a couple of brackish tanks at my place. My fave is the one with my micropoecilia pictas in it. Also some shrimps, marmor bumblebee gobies, rasbora brigattae and rasbora maculatus are housing in there.

I kept zebra danios and neon tetras in a brackish tank with fiddler crabs.

Indeed! You can keep rasboras perfectly in brackish water. They've been doing great in there for the past 4 years... even breeding ain't a problem.
