    I have Mangroves from e-bay. They grew great! Get the ones from Hawaii. Also keep them covered w/a clear dome or top. They tend to dry out. It also helps to use a airstone in the covered area to introduce moisture to the atmosphere. This really works! I will try to post pics. Also shy away from localy harvested mangroves because of there very fragile root system. Many failed attempts, this might help your marine forest!LOL Dave

    Yea the three I have now are in the sump where the overflow comes and it has a lot of bubbles that are keeping them wet. What do you use to keep them afloat? I use styrofoam but it seems like it is blocking a lot of the light to them....

    I have a lot of LR in my sump, with the roots down deep in the LR. only ablut the top 4-5 inches are above the surface. Mist w/rodi water at least 1 time per day.
