How are mangroves for filtration, say in a refugium? I just started a hob refugium and I've been seeing this come up alot. There's always some who say they grow too slow and others that they work well.. is there any definitive word on it?
What's a good growth rate for mangroves? I think my propagules are doing well, but I don't really know what to expect. They're very cute, by the way.
The mangrove trees generally grow pretty slow. Like lauraleellblp said they might not be all that effective for biological filtration. But the are fun to grow because they look cool and they are biologically interesting.
