Mangroves!

Just received 6 red mangrove seedlings today! I've staked them up so the roots are out of the water partially to encourage prop root growth. Any tips on getting them to flourish? I have no green thumb...

Here are some links that may help. In the future I would recommend researching in advance to make sure you have the proper equipment such as lighting or substrate to support your aquisitions. It could just save you a BUNCH of $$$ and headaches.

That came out sounding pretty harsh and I'm sorry for that but I can't think straight right now and this is the only way I could think of to word it. I'm not picking on you, just offering advice. Congrats on the find. I've seen them in Florida and they can look awesome in a tank!
