    I recently returned from a trip to Belize:dance:. I did a lot of fishing in the back bays, and I was amazed by the community's of fish established just within the mangroves and the variety of macroalgae that were growing. I would like to try to integrate this into my current 75g. I do not have...

    I live in Florida and I collect and grow Red Mangrove seed pods for aquarium use. These plants do an excellent job of acting as filters in your aquarium or pond. I can ship rooted plants anywhere in the US; including Alaska and Hawaii. The price is $4 each for each healthy, rooted seedling...

    well its been exactly a year since my gf and I set up our 75. Its a stock deep blue 75 with a 2'x2' frag tank and mangrove saucer. The mangrove started as a seed and I hope to trim into a bonsai as time progresses. The stand is 8' long and is completely open which makes maintenance very easy...

    So a few days ago I was thinking to break down my jbj 28 to get a good cleaning and restart it. When I was doing this I realized the pumps were just behind a piece of plastic. So could i drill 2 holes about 8 inches up where the pumps are located and put 2 strainer bulkheads in that place. I'm...
  5. Tank Specs
    Hi everyone, My first post here on ReefCentral, hopefully the start of what I hope will end with a nice new reef tank!

    There doesn't seem to be much info on these, and much of it is conflicting. I want to add some of these to my upside-down jellyfish tank. More so for decoration that filtration, but the small amount of filtration is still a plus. So my questions: Is it best to plant them in sand, mud or rock...
  8. Freshwater Discussion
    So I have a 55 gallon long brackish tank. With only a pin fish and some grape calurpa. I have recently been thinking about doing a mangrove open top brackish tank with more native cast net caught fish. (I live on the gulf coast) Has anyone done this and have advice on lighting and how to start...

    Greetings all, First of all, from my tests the water looks to be great. Everything at or too close to zero to tell. Water is at 1.026 ( if I recall correctly) I have a 85 Gal flat back hex tank setup and running with around 125ish of Live rock, couple fish, a basic leather coral I was given...
  10. Lighting
    Recently added mangrove to the sump/refugium. Was told that grow bulbs were needed for this. The problem is the grow bulbs also grow red algae. Has anyone used a different light for these? Let me know if you would like any further information. Thanks, Tracee

  12. General Reef Discussion
    So I've read a lot about them and its apparently good for nutrient export according to some people and others say its merely for decoration because it grows slowly... does anybody know the truth or is it a matter of opinion? i just ordered a couple because they were fairly cheap and i was...

  14. Non Coral Dominated Systems
    I got a couple of mangroves on a group order before I was really ready fopr them. One cut came w/o leaves and the other had two leaves. THe leaves are browning and not looking so great. The stump looks about the same :nuts:. Currently they are floating in my 10 gallon tank in styrofoam...
