Brackish in Short
Brackishwater aquariums are a growing scene in the aquarium hobby. Brackishwater fish do best in specific gravity between 1.005 to 1.015, though most are accustomed to fluctuations in salinity levels. Equipment in brackish water systems is more akin to freshwater, however the main difference is the necessity of a hydrometer and kind of salt used. Salt in brackish aquariums must be marine salt. Overall brackishwater aquariums and ecosystems are fascinating examples of just how diverse life can be.
Shown above is a Caspian Seal. Caspian Seals are one of the few non-marine seals in existence. These "true seals" live in the northern regions of the brackish Caspian Sea, the worlds largest lake.
