Mangroves in the display tank?

Wanted to order a few of these Mangroves. Any thoughts about having them in the DT since I dont have a sump.

I think it would look cool if you kept them good and trimmed.

IMO they're more hassle then they are worth. They're very poor nutrient removal and you need to spray the leaves with freshwater daily

I tried to keep them in my sump...what was said above is true. Just a pain to get them started off and mine died. Don't think I'd try again unless given some for free.
