Ok, so sadly all the mangroves ended up withering away for a reason still unknown to me. BUT
Here is the layout for attempt #2, which will be a lot cleaner and nicer looking rather than a diatom filled [censored][censored][censored][censored] tank with a ball of chaeto and hap-hazard Mangroves all over the place.
I just ordered tonight a Refugium Starter Kit and some Caulerpa Prolifera from Reefs2Go to start this this again. There will also be a Bluestripe Pipefish pair in here once it is all established.
This will be a THOUSAND times better than the older version. Mangroves will get added later and will give me some time to figure out how to keep it alive
