How much salt can featherfin cats tolerate?

Recommended Posts

About to start gradually salting up a tank very slowly so as not to upset the bio-bacteria in the sump and am aiming to get it to brackish water condition, he be ok in it or best get rid of him? He's 30cm+

Featherfins can handle salt well in the normal concentrations used in freshwater tanks - including freshwater native tanks. "Brackish" though requires clarification - brackish can mean anything from a trace of salt up to 1.016 or more... They certainly wont like high concentrations of salt. I have had them in tanks with a temporary SG of 1.002. I would certainly not take them higher than that nor would I recommend even that level unless for treatment in an emergency. Cheers
