Some of the fish may get eaten like the danios or guppies

Can I use a salt water filter for a brackish tank?

Omg! 110 would have a pair of red terrors and some eljd's

I don't think that I would add mudskippers to that mix, they do better in softwater and amphibian habitats. Go for a couple more kuhlis, you could try a few female crowntail betta. I have an obsession with oto cats. Skirted tetras, blind cave tetras, gourami are also pretty chill fish, dwarf that is, much like their betta relatives they sometimes have aggression problems toward their own species (including betta) but are usually peaceful and shy, especially sunset dwarf gourami, powder blue gourami and dwarf balloon pink kissers. Inverts and crustaceans can provide great amusement as well.

Yes, you can use a saltwater filter for high end brackish, however freshwater salts are different than saltwater salts, remember to stay away from reef crystals when going brackish.

I used red sea seasalt mix worked good. And kept it at a constant 26 degrees and salinity of 1.008ppm I think in my 10g bucket it was 9-12 big tea spoons to get it around that.

So I should convert it to a fresh tank? I mean I have only just mastered fresh in the last year. Am I ready to move to salt? I'm also pondering the idea of keeping my 54 gallon and using it as either a mud skipper/ puffer tank or a axolotl tank. I need to decide by the middle of next week hopefully I will get lots of comments to make my decision.
