How can we make water brackish? Would normal rock salt solve the purpose or is there some special salt for the same.

For bumble bees, you can go for rock salt.

You will have to use marine salt and aim for an average specific gravity of 1.010. Where sea water and freshwater meets that place has brackish water.
