Coral in Brackish Setup?

Check out this link:

http://www.aquahobby.org/tanks/tank0108a.html

The last picture in this article features coral and plants together in a Brackish setup. Has anyone else seen or heard of this. I would love to keep coral in my Brackish tank. How possible is this?

The corals look like zoos. From what I've read these are incredibly hardy and thrive in tidal areas which no doubt have varying degrees of salinity. Brackish covers wide range. The plant look like mangroves. If it is salty enough they must be able to live. I think water salty enough for mangroves and zoos won't grow "regular" plants.

thanks, I'll look into those, zoos. I've already got the mangroves. I've also heard from someone else that if im to replicate the system that I may have to aclimatize the corals slowly. Any thoughts?
