    Bummer. I lost my mangroves I originally had when I first set up my tank after the cycle... That's why I didn't get in on this buy I just figured I'd lose them anyhow. I sorry to hear Doyle that yours aren't well. Are they in low or high flow? Also immediately after a baffle that sits kinda high? Maybe they're not getting good flow to the roots?

It appears that the reading I did involving acclimation of groves did not prove accurate or the salinity of the water they came from was not correct. They look like what happens when you put them from fresh water to salt water. I assume they were in lower salinity than what we keep our reef tanks at ie 24. From what I was reading, coming down from high salinity to low salinity was ok but going up in salinity is where the problem occurs. Roots seem to be growing though so hoping they do not die.

    Sounds like mine are doing as everyones. The roots do seem to be growing but the leaves are falling off and stems shrivling. Not quiting but curious
