    They will do fine in saltwater, but they don't like to be constantly flooded like the Reds. I'd potted mine and it's growing as a house plant. An attractive little house plant at that. lol

    It is often found in its native range with the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) and the white mangrove (Laguncularia racemosa). White mangroves grow inland from black mangroves which themselves grow inland from red mangroves. The three species work together to stabilize the shoreline, provide buffers from storm surges, trap debris and detritus brought in by tides, and provide feeding, breeding, and nursery grounds for a great variety of fish, shellfish, birds, and other wildlife.

    I think they'll grow under any light as long as it's reef type lighting, but if you really want them to do well and grow big- then they need A LOT of light.
