Can mono argentus live in freshwater?

Mono fish can live in freshwater when young but as they grow older they will need to be acclimatized to more brackish waters and eventually when they mature they should be kept in saltwater aquariums.

Are mono angelfish aggressive?

They are lively and rambunctious, but they are peaceful with their other tank mates. They may eat small fish and shrimp and they are easily intimidated by large or aggressive fish.

How do you take care of Mono fish?

The Monodactylus argenteus needs brackish water to thrive. The water temperature should be ideally between 75.0 to 82.0° F (23.9 to 27.8° C). Keep the water hardness between 8-14 dGH and the pH level between 7.2-8.5. To make the water brackish, add 2-3 teaspoons of marine water salt mix per gallon of water.

What salinity is brackish water?

Water from 3,000-10,000 Mg/L TDS will be considered brackish Water in excess of 10,000 Mg/L will be considered saline. Ground water with salinity greater than seawater (about 35,000 mg/L) is typically referred to as brine.

What pH is brackish water?

Brackish water occurs at the mouths of rivers where fresh water and seawater mix. The salt and chlorides content are diluted to approximately 1 to 2.5% and 4000 ppm respectively, giving a pH range of 6 to 9. Because of the turbulent flow regime brackish water contains suspended solids, typically silt and sand.

How much salt is in brackish?

between 0.5 and 30 grams
Technically, brackish water contains between 0.5 and 30 grams of salt per litre—more often expressed as 0.5 to 30 parts per thousand (‰), which is a specific gravity of between 1.0004 and 1.0226. Thus, brackish covers a range of salinity regimes and is not considered a precisely defined condition.

Can arowana live in 3 feet tank?

Originally Answered: What is the minimum tank size to have for keeping silver arowana? 8 feet long and 4 feet wide – minimum. Remember they grow up to be 4 feet long, so the depth have to be a minimum of 4 feet (so they can turn).

What salinity is brackish?

0.5 to 30 parts per thousand
