Halfbeak Questions

Recommended Posts

I’m starting to fall for halfbeaks, and the only ones we can get in at my LFS are the Celebes halfbeaks, but my manager says they’re brackish so we have to order them and have the person getting them pick them up the same day. However, everything I’ve seen online I’ve seen them being kept in freshwater. So, are the Celebes halfbeaks brackish? Fresh?

Furthermore, my current biggest tank is a 20 long, would the Celebes be too big for this tank? Or would a small group work?

Assuming my tank is a good fit and I can acclimate them over to fresh and they do come brackish, I do have a Hanna salinity checker so I would extremely slowly acclimate them to freshwater (advice on this would be great too)
