PHOTO AT BOTTOM OF POST (can i change this)
it says they are brackish and marine but extremely freshwater compatible, swimming hundreds of miles inland (frshwater) depending on sub family.
one site said 1 tablespoon salt per blah blah gallons. for the hogchoker, NOT the sub family i have i'm certain BUT i use aquarium salt from jungle for freshwater and always have, no one has suffered from it. i owned a fan-dancer or knight goby forever. sooooo. will he survive given his freshwater tendancies?
