Brackish Central blends quality and quantity together, allowing information to be shared amongst hobbyists and enthusiasts, beginner and expert. Our goal is to educated people around the world about the brackishwater aquarium hobby as well as the importance of the brackishwater ecosystem. We hope you will join in our mission to educate others as well as to enjoy our resources.
Brackish in Short
Brackish: Not quite fresh, not quite marine. Brackish and brackishwater are all names for the brackishwater ecosystem. Contrary to popular belief, brackish does not mean dirty. Rather it means salty. The brackish ecosystem hosts many lifeforms, from plants to seals. Brackish waters are most often found in areas where freshwater meets saltwater. The most prevalent area is the estuary, where a river meats the ocean. Other areas and habitats include lagoons, marshes, and mangrove forests. The largest body of brackishwater in the world is the Baltic Sea.

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.
