Brackish Water Plants???

Recommended Posts

I have a 29g that my green spotted puffer lives in with a scape of cichlid rocks and plastic plants that he/she can explore. I would really like to replace the plastic plants with something live as all of my freshwater tanks have only live plants in them. I am also hoping that live plants could slightly help lengthen the time in between water changes by consuming some nutrients. Are there any plants that are easy to get online or that I can look for at my LFS that will tolerate brackish water? Thanks in advance!

You can try using mangroves. I've seen many saltwater tanks with mangroves growing out of them, so they can definitely handle the salt. It might not be the best as a in tank plant, you can't fully submerged the plant, but it it will help with excess nutrients.
