I have a toad fish (Batrachoidae) and a gray snapper (Lutjanus griseus)
that are now in 100% fresh water. I did the regular water changes and
replaced all of the salt water with fresh water over a period of time. The
fish don't appear to be affected in any way. The tank substrate is crushed
coral, though, so the water must be hard. I have done the same with
Fundulus grandis, Apeltes quadracus, Lucania parva and Cyprinodon
