      Does anyone know anything about Butis Butis, the crazy fish. They're a brackish sleeper goby that reaches about 6 inches but other than that can't find out anything. Hardness? pH? Setup?

      These are brackish and prefer a higher ph than 7 and slightly hard water. Prefer rock and driftwood to hide and rest in. Cool oddball.

      Higher than expected. Can always do 1/2 tap water and 1/2 ro water. Should be fine to mix that way.

      Ok, so exactly how brackish does it have to be? Can it be 1.006 like my other setup? Or does it have to be higher?

      Can try the crazy fish in 1.006. Don’t think it has to be higher.
