<< I dug up a pretty neat 20 gall at a tag sale for my daughters room, and 
 is insisting on a brackish tank (she loves those gobies and  puffers) As I 
 not too fond of fish only tanks, I am going to attempt some plants. I can 
 some Java fern, Val and Anubias from some of my existing tanks. I am hoping 
 these will fair well in brackish water, anyone have any experience in this 
 area? Are there any other varieties that would do well in brackish 
 conditions?? Thanks for any help .

From my experience when there is any salt in the water, the plants die & melt 
Ther are probably some plants that are tolerant to salt but from my 
exspereince the ones that you listed are not.
