View Full Version : RDSB + Mangroves

06-23-2010, 3:04 PM
Hello All,

I've become a big fan of RDSB's; I have found them to be very effective on my reefs! I want to set one up in my living room next to my tank, but would like for it to look better than a homedepot bucket on the fireplace. What I have done is make the bucket, then put it in a large planter. I had originally planned to put a lid on it and put a house plant on top to sort of disguise it.

I recently had the thought of leaving the top off and planting mangroves in it! Any idea if this will become a maintenance nightmare, or if it will reduce the effectiveness of the RDSB?

Well the RDSB is supposed to be in total darkness, so I think there might be some problems trying to grow mangroves...
