Hello All, I acquired around 5/6 mangrove pods from a recent trip to FL. The pods are growing out nicely in the refugium of my 90G tank. As I let them fully develop, I think it is best to look toward the future as they cannot permanently live in a sump. The solution, I plan on buying glass and constructing a breeder style AIO tank system to house my mangroves. The breeder style will hopefully create a lagoon, allowing the roots to grow down while providing space around them to house appropriate corals, inverts, and fish. The filtration will mirror something like my 33L build (Shown below). https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/33-long-build.366016/ My questions are as follows. As mangroves live in estuaries, what conditions make them the happiest. Hoping some members with big mangroves can share pictures and condition info. Do water conditions need to vary based on the stage of the plant? (pod, seedling, juvenile, full grown, etc.). Also, what corals, fish, and inverts go best with mangroves. I do a lot of snorkeling/diving in the Gulf of Mexico, and I don't see many corals around the mangroves there. Regardless, what fish and coral species would mimic a natural mangrove reef. Please let me know.
