At my petsmart, I saw knight gobies in with platys and mollies! I asked the man, "Aren't they brackish water?" and he said, "Yes, but they're adapted to fresh" ... could they really live healthily that way?

Any BW fish can be forced into fresh (or FW fish-BW, or SW-BW), but its immune system will be compromised, if kept in FW long-term, causing diseases & early death.
