Mangroves are not proper marine plants and are in fact found in brackish-water marshes or other areas where fresh and saltwater meet. They have been used to help stabilize the banks of brackish-water aquaculture services, medicine, chemistry study, building, agriculture, and even as a potential food source for human and livestock consumption. Other than that growing mangrove on a tank adds to the decoration of the aquarium making it look like a natural island surrounded by trees.

Another product fairly new the aquarium industry is Tunze’s new Comline Mangrove Box. These boxes are designed to hold mangroves and other plants that are commonly used for nutrient uptake or decoration. Tunze also has Black Mangrove seeds (sold separately) that can be placed in the Mangrove Box to be grown out. Red Mangroves grow differently than Black Mangroves, and I’m not sure if they could (or should) be grown in this device. The box attaches to the side of your aquarium or sump with a magnet mount (seen on Tunze pumps) and automatically draws in water from the underside.

This can even be done with a filter tank and is very simple. Julian Sprung has a tank of this type connected to his "famous" little reef tank. All you have to do is to take a few mangroves that root on some porous lime rocks, place it in the center of this tank and surround it with some corals typical of the lagoonal zone. A weak water current is sufficient for the mangroves (but obviously you should also ask the corals for their opinion). This mangrove tank can be connected to your main reef tank, for example by placing it a little higher and pumping a small amount of water from the reef tank into the mangrove tank, so it will flow back into the reef tank via gravity. With the help of a timer you can even add a second pump which will pump at certain intervals and transport more water into the mangrove tank, resulting in a higher water level. By doing so you will imitate the natural high and ebb tides. If you createthe decoration of your mangrove tank in a way that lets some areas fall dry during ebb tide, you can even add animal life typical for this mangrove zone, a fascinating thing.Growing mangroves enables one to decorate a tank to look like a fringing reef that surrounds an island, as seen from the ocean. In fact, this is what I tried to do with my 1500 gallon tank with the help of 40 mangroves. A viewer that sits in front of the tank faces the "wall" of a "fringing reef," and if he looks over the water surface, he can see a "beach area" behind it, planted with mangroves. When standing behind the tank, one feels like a giant looking at a little mangrove forest over the beach area into the coral reef. Sometimes you can even see corals and other sessile inverts growing on the submerged parts of the mangrove's trunks. I remember a Pavona venosa fully surrounding one of my mangroves, covering the complete submerged trunk - a little unusual because Pavona cannot be considered a typical coral genus growing in the mangrove area. But, in fact, those mangroves growing near the lagoonal area where their roots are permanently submerged even duringebb tide often have lots of sponges, mussels and even corals growing on them. Pocillopora damicornis grows in this area, and occasionally we can also find corals typical for a lagoon. If we plant mangroves in our aquaria and we want to create a coral community that has some similarity to the low and submerged parts of a natural mangrove zone, we can use Catalaphyllia, Goniopora, Pachyseris, Leptoseris, Herpolitha, Euphyllia, and many others. Even small polyped scleractinians like Porites, Montipora, Pavona, Pocillopora and even some Acropora species can occasionally be found there, aside from zoanthid polyps, disc anemones and soft corals like Sarcophyton or Sinularia.The images united by mangrove root artificial aquarium decoration large theme are considered to be rather trendy at present.
