Is anybody currently using mangroves? I am planning on adding 2 or 3 to my refugium and would appreciate any advice or hearing about past experiences.
Thanks,

There's a cute little pamphlet out there by Julian Sprung on the care of Mangroves.

Check around on the mail order sites.

I use mangroves. Not sure how much good they do but who else in the middle of Texas can say they have mangroves in their living room. I have them in a sump under my tank with a grow light. Looks really cool and doesn't detract from the tank at all.

I am trying one seedling 6-8 leaves in my sump / refugium with N.O. grow lights. I watched my Nitrates drop 50 ppm to 5 ppm in a couple of days. I was reading somewhere that they require traces of magnesium to survive.

If this continues I my have to get a wet/dry filter [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Just kidding
