Most larger saltwater fish regularly put themselves into freshwater baths from streams coming off islands in the wild to kill off parasites such as Ich, flukes worms and also sometimes bacterial infections. Sharks and groupers are both known for going into freshwater but tangs trigger fish saltwater angelfish batfish and most saltwater handle freshwater quite well handle it really well just not most gobies blennys jawfish or other fish with sensitive scales. Ive fed a tank of large fire eels krill before then thrown an emperor angel in their tank to get rid of a few flukes, next thing I know I have to thaw out more food for the eels cause the emperor angel ate it all. Didnt care that he was in a net 10 seconds earlier and is now in freshwater or another tank. Ive also heard stories of undulated triggerfish eating the faces of snakeheads and spending the night in freshwater and swimming around like absolutely nothing is wrong so youd be really surprised on what fish can go through

Homosassa Springs in Florida is a place where salt and fresh water fish coexist naturally.
