Can fresh water plants live in brackish water? If not what plants would you suggest for my brackish green puffer tank. the tank has good lighting when I had neon tetras the amazon sword grew really good and big and I want to put them there but I wasnt quite sure if the brackish water would affect the amazon sword. thanks in advance for your replies

Hi Fishfreek,
First of all I don't think that the Amazon Swords will do well in brackish water (although I wouldn't swear to it!).
Here are some plants which I believe will be suitable:

Java Fern http://www.aquahobby.com/garden/pjavafern.html
Dwarf Sagittaria http://www.aquahobby.com/garden/psubulata.html
Pygmy Chain Sword http://www.aquahobby.com/garden/ptenellus.html
Water Sprite http://www.aquahobby.com/garden/pcerato.html

Hope this helps to get you started off! Good luck Smile
