|assasin6547||Interesting, are you going to add mangrove crabs?|

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.

Ok, so sadly all the mangroves ended up withering away for a reason still unknown to me.
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

are you going to put in a powerhead as a means of circulation and that's it? i don't think it would work without any flow at all...
looks like a good start.
I remember seeing nice builds with mangroves on nanoreef forums but can't seem to find the threads anymore

|FisheriesOmen||I have also taken out the canister filter as I'm starting to transition it to a fully natural system.|

Sorry for the lack of updates.
But it continues!
The Mangroves were starting to look in pretty bad shape so I asked for help on my local reefing forums and I must've missed how much light baby mangroves actually need. So I quickly went to menards on New Years day and got me a fixture. I also did a large trimming of cheato (it took up over half the tank).
Also I have created a little "Mangrove Rack" to use to keep them straight till they have fully matured. Many of them have lost some roots when pushing them through the holes in the styrofoam.
I have also been recently intrigued in EG filtration and plan on incorporating that into my tank at a later date.

|rainbuilder||Any updates? This is a really cool thread|

Mangroves are here!
Just laid them in there for now until I can get some styrofoam to make an "air root maker".

I am getting really into natural biotopes now instead of the usual SPS cluster Fest that people normally do.
I have decided to go with Aratus pisonii and Scylla serrata and maybe Uca pugnax for live stock. Not sure if I'm going to go with any fish as most natural fish are brackish and not pure saltwater.
