I live on the west coast in lehigh. It is close to Ft.Myres and Cape Coral. Thats is exciting i found someone in Florida that is a fish fanatic. I see you are near Cocoa Beach.

Cool, i know a friend with a pressure washer that i could use then i will soak and scrub them. All florida is is a giant dead reef. That is how Florida was formed so it is everywhere, even where there is no ocean. I will make sure i don't collect it near the beach. That is a smart idea thincat, i could provide fill for building and fish tanks.

You know I live in South Carolina and our beaches are nothing but mud and oyster rakes. Wish I had something like that here.

Yes I am inland 10 miles from Cocoa Beach.

jessicasmarine I am surronded by salt water rivers and if I hade the urge to get rock and such it would not be to hard. I can tell you this if there was a high demand for mangrove seeds I could be a rich man lol.

I am sure they do. I see them floating every where so I am sure that is how they migrate the just float around untill they land on the shore and the start growing.

Ya, down here at the beaches/brackish water rivers you see these little pod things that kinda looks like little green cigars. I am finding more and more things that i can get free because i live in Florida.

How deep of a sandbed do you have? How much room do you need for them? 6/7 in one of those small chambers in your sump?
