brackish water, "bw", it is where the ocean and freshwater combine. if the specific gravity or "SG" of freshater is 1.00(no salt) and the SG of salt is around 1.024, i believe im not a salt person but i think that is very close, someone correct me if im wrong, then brackish SG is between there and is usually on the low end between 1.005 and 1.015. Specific gravity is how dense the water is. i find that brackish are easier kept them fresh or salt because they are less disease prone due to the salt and they are used to drastic water quality changes depending on the tide and weather. i also love the variety of life that lives in brackish. many crabs, shrimp, puffers and my personal favorite are mudskippers (the coolest fish every)
