Wood is not something I would put in any of my tanks - especially not wood I picked up on the beach. Not saying you can’t put it in your tank, it just sounds really risky to me. And I agree, there is likely a good reason that no one does it.

So you have a friend with the exact type of tank you want to set up... have you asked them anything? Seems like they’d have a lot of valuable info for you.
I did, they said macros like dirty water and I don’t need crazy lights or filtration. I am gonna do mine with much more corals though.

What is the specific gravity of his water? Just asking because his fish are brackish water fish.
Is it 1.025 or??
Pretty cool tank

I would not use twigs you find outside.
Oh ok. Could I use wild mangrove out of water and mabye a palm frond or some oysters and stuff? I want to have a realistic blended scape. I want it to look good but realistic I am not going to do like a 1 foot sand bed and mud but I am going to do it to a point where it’s imperfect perfection

Sailfin mollies are naturally brackish fish actually. I would do wild sailfins if I got mollies. I really like the general Caribbean biotope and with all the fish/coral/macros I like I might be able to make a very close biotope!

Also, if it’s legal, can I get wild mangrove seeds because idk where to source them that isn’t ridiculously expensive
