Funny thing is that three spined sticklebacks are popular European native fish, I've seen them in the the aquarium books. If I obtained three spined sticklebacks from saltwater then convert them to the freshwater, can they breed in the tubs?

Although I have converted threespines collected in saltwater to freshwater, I have not bred them.
Since some populations are considered anadromous, and others are landlocked in freshwater, in theory, it should work.

Just to show you how one of the european populations looks like. Pungitius pungitius in breeding colouration.
