    I had that little tank above custom built to my specifications with no holes or overflow as we can do that ourselves. I had them do a black back and bottom. Tank was very affordable. The FREE shipping is what's really nice!

    Anthony Caflo really stress this in his article. Was one of the few things he put in bold and said remember this!

    For marine hobby purposes, we seek the Red Mangrove specifically. Indeed, it is the first species likely to be encountered by aquarists. It is the most commonly photographed for its magnificent aerial prop roots (the arched and exposed knobby knees plunging into the coastline and shallows). And it is by far the most important species of this family to marine environments as mentioned above. They are the most hardy and adaptable species for aquarium use if given some very simple maintenance. The one thing you should remember from this article above all is that red mangrove leaves need to be sprayed with clean, freshwater almost daily for optimal health and growth.

    Yup thanks for bringing mangroves back to light again... we did mangroves in our bins when we were trying to build coralline encrusted live rock. Spraying the leaves with a mister of ro/di was huge. We only lost one. These were red mangroves from Dennis @ FJW...

    Aquariums are like crack... they require hand-made paraphernalia to operate, they cost more than you expect, and you can't get enough. Why? WHY?

    Let me see if I can inspire Mark a bit more and maybe some of you other guys and gals. Guys...these plants are cheap. I just about 5 red Mangroves for $8 on Ebay. Everybody can get in on this. Besides, who doesn't like plants!





    Look at these prop roots!

    Guys...remember...the sky is the limit with your Red Mangrove tree. You typically see small Mangroves in our hobby because people don't pay attention to their needs. So you can have a small tree, or you can grow one to your ceiling! It's really your choice.
