I haven't really seen many people add plant material (at least purposefully) directly to a saltwater tank. Instead, people tend to build a sump / refugium and then fill the refugium with types of plants and macroalgae to absorb nitrates.

I'm not sure there are many types of plants that could be used a decoration in Saltwater, because most of it is algae or algae-like.

I've heard of the saltwater plants but I would personally stay away from it unless I had a refugium to counter any algae issues that may arise from it.....dead or dieing plants = lots of nutrients :-/

And people might sound like the tang police but they are right with the size of your tank being to small....... I have a 90g and only keep one tang (YELLOW TANG) cause it doesn't grow as big as most tangs..... And you must remember tang get ich faster then most fish out there.......IMO /G.L.
