Mangrove Plants

Anybody using Mangrove Plants to help with their filtration? How is yours planted? Do you feed it anything?

I was thinking about putting in my DT. Maybe building a container from acrylic or something and putting gravel in it then placing. It's just a thought, my level are good right now, but I'll be adding some fish nest week and I'm expecting levels may shift a little, I'll prolly add some LR at the same time, just to be safe.

They are a good nutrient exporter, but so is chaeto and its much easier to get algae to grow fast and really tie up organics. But mangroves are cool.
