Question bout live plants and wood pieces in brackish.

Ive had my 32g brackish tank now for a few months and I'm planning upgrade to a 75g that is set up for a coral set up in a few months. I want to add live plants in there and some wood pieces and I was wondering if I could do that because of the salt?

I have had good luck with java fern in low level brackish water, at least until my fish bit a zillion little holes in them. My tank was littered with java fern confetti... But this was with GSP's. They grew well. Now that tank is saltwater so I don't have any plants other than a couple Marimo moss balls. Those will do great in brackish water. As for driftwood, it will work but keep a good eye on it as the salt will lead to it deteriorating faster than it would in freshwater. If the salt level is low I wouldn't really worry about it.
