    Ok, i'll bite. Put me down for 10.

    JJ, one note mentioned was that we should know the salinity of the water that they are being harvested from so that we can acclimate them to our systems properly. Are they being harvested from nature or being grown in a facility?

    If this buy does expand to include macros I would be interested I've been wanting more the cheato. I don't know enough about mangroves to consider getting any yet, plus not sure if my setup has the room.

Each trwe will be 12-18" 5all. If anyone is interested I will find out the specifics for everyone. 1-?? Per person. Pick up will be at my house after they ship in.

    Mangroves are filter feeders (phosphate and nitrate) and are the reason that the everglades are thriving. No matter what you read on the internet, no one knows the exact number of trees that you will need to benefit from each plant per saltwater system. We know that they work and rhey look cool. Lol

    what we do know is that they are very easy to take care of. You need to spray down the leaves with a little bit of rodi water to make sure that there is no salt creep on them. 1-2 x's a week will be plenty. Any typical fuge light is plenty of enough. The root system can go in a sand bed or in open water.

    A lot of people get a small piece of foam, punch a small whole in it, and shove the tree into the whole, thus leaving the root in the water and the leaves above.

    Thats make the cut off for ordering on the 16th. This will make pick up on friday the 20th and sat the 21st.


    Cash will be due at pick up

    I would be interested in 50 depending on what distributor they came from and if they were wild collected.
