Saltwater Riparium Plants


hello! i have a 30 gallon saltwater riparium that i am trying to develop. about 1/3 of the system is an elevated, white sand beach. this is surrounded by rock and then the rest is open water. currently i have about a dozen mangroves growing both out of the beach and out of the water. however, i am looking for additional plants for this system.

i was hoping i could find some saltwater tolerant grasses to grow out of the sand. or out of the water even. are there any saltwater plants available other than macroalgaes? does anyone know of any retail outlets that sell or collect plants common in saltwater marshes or tropical beaches?

thank you for your help!

Search spartina patens common water front remediation plant. Spartina alternaflora is anothee but grows to big for a tank. But are indigenous to the back bay marsh areas in the mid-atlantic states. The S.patens is a maginal that likes its roots in wet rich soil (not sand) but will stay alive with more water if allowed to gow out of the water.

Are you sure you don't want to do a brackish setup instead? There are a number of really great mangrove plants for brackish conditions.
