i have researched this, all of our estuaries and mangrove are protected.it show you that the natural way is always best, thanks for shearing Dallas
i think our estuaries is full of that mud his referring to ,places like kosi bay,and st Lucia it mite be Worth to collect some of that estuary mud to get tings started in your dsb.
Although mangroves are a nice addition to a refugium they are very slow growers and not good enough for sufficient nutrient export. Chaeto or caulerpa is much better in that sence.i have researched this, all of our estuaries and mangrove are protected.
I am importing mangroves for my tank, about 75 which i will resell once matured and healthy, i then will also sell the MUD
the only draw back is that mangroves use up Mg, so will have to suppliment that, but i am looking for a natural solution.
watch my thread
Unless you running baby mangroves, they will export nutrients, way better than macro algae, just due to their size. The most effective mangrove refuge are run outdoors to allow the tree to really grow.not good enough for sufficient nutrient export. .
