Sorry to revive an older thread here, but I'd be very curious to hear how those black mangroves did as they got older. Were you able to keep them small via pruning or did you replace them as they outgrew the space?
I have a seedling that's going on one year old now, and I'm just trying to learn as much as I can from others' experiences with the species in a brackish setup. Here's mine:

This tank is featured in an article in the current issue of AMAZONAS Magazine. I think it turned out pretty good. I tried to include some good specific information on growing the mangrove trees in a riparium setup.

Here's one of the quick shots that I got last week. I got the tank cleaned up pretty good, but I need to keep shooting.
I really like the plants in here a lot, especially the Pandanus.

Somebody wants a magazine article about this tank. I gotta get it cleaned up and photo-ready again.
I have had a hard time trying to get good pictures of the killis. They are pretty little fish, but they look pale and washed out against the aragonite sand. I think I'll just try to get a few good tank shots, and then do some studio photos for the fish in a smaller specimen tank against a black background. They will probably look better like that.

Here are a couple more shots with better views of the foliage.

Love it. I noticed a few pages back you were interested in diamond killifish. If you're still interested I could collect you some this spring/summer. They're quite abundant near Galveston. You could also probably put naked gobies in there. I find them in the bay, but I've kept them in hard freshwater before. Feel free to shoot me a PM about it sometime.
Out of curiosity, where did you get the Pandanus?
