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

Re: Planted Saltwater 20g

My new planted saltwater nano tank. It contains two Sexy Shrimp, a couple blue legged hermit crabs, (one of which recently hatched eggs) a small anemone and a couple snails.

Chaeto and a piece of faded Dragon's Breath macro algae act as greens.

Interesting, are you going to add mangrove crabs?

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

I was but then I realized they are all brackish inverts which wouldn't be compatible with everything else in my tank.
