It'll be trial and error with corals so just start with nice cheap ones! Same with inverts, try some hermits and snails before shrimp to see how he interacts.

Personally I would definitely leave out the inverts I have had puffers myself over the years A dogface and a porcupine and inverse are definitely off the list especially shrimps.

Oh he will stalk the shrimp and eventually kill them😂 he doesn't seem as interested in the larger snails. I have two in there that are bigger then his mouth and he leaves them alone. But the shrimp forget it! He will eat mts as well. I was thinking since the hermits are alittle bigger I may try one to see how he is with aggression once I'm fully converted to marine.

It depends on the type of mangrove. I have several red mangrove in the sump of my saltwater setup, but they are very slow growers and even after a couple years are barely more than a sprout.
The difficulty they can have is that they don't always transition well to different water conditions. With that they are easy to sprout and care for, but can be a pain due to needing shallow water conditions or some sort of way to be floated on the water. A great way to accomplish this is cutting up foam tubes for your pool.

That's a great idea!! I will remember that. Mine are tall enough now that they are very much so out of the water. And I hope that by still slowly converting the salinity to marine from a brackish gives them adequate time to adjust. So far so good! Thank you so much😊
