The msngroves were positioned in a way that the roots are mostly exposed but a few have anchored in and around the live rock. I plan on shattering the rocks to expose the roots on those pieces. Will be a delicate process but Im confident I can free them. I dont want to have live rock transferred to fresh due to the high calcium content. Would definitely cause problems with the water chemistry Im aiming for. (Not to mention the biological pollution that the dieoff would cause). The rest of the substrate is simply aragonite but most roots havent reached down that far
