    Wow, never thought about petting zoo, we have snakes, an occasional gator, fox, squirrel, rabbit, deer, wild turkey, opossums, coyote, armadillos, raccoons cats, dogs, chickens, and every bird imaginable. Got rid of cows, horses, and goats. Bummer, think of all the aquarium money we could have made.

    I thought this was beautiful aquascaping. The plants and rock would work well for a brackish setup. They used java fern, java moss and lava rock.

    That is probably the best brackish tank I've seen. Though I personally would have used a light colored sand as the substrate. I've always liked the idea of a mangrove tank, but to get it to where I'd want with the roots and all would take YEARS. lol
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    I couldn't figure out if the substrate was coarse sand or gravel, but agree that light sand would look good in that setup. I've seen a few pics of the mangrove tanks with the open tops and the roots do look amazing.

    It does look incredible :)
    But correct me if I am wrong Java moss can only survive in lightly brackish water right?

    I'm not sure about the exact salinity, but will check into it. :)

    Java moss can tolerate SG up to 1.005. Java fern up to 1.013. I found another good article on brackish systems:

    After spending several weeks researching and trying to plan a sw setup and experiencing a lot of frustration, ups and downs and just generally unhappy and stressed out, I'm back to planning a brackish tank and feel happy and excited again. Hooray!

    Since there is not a specific thread for brackish tank journals and I've already rambled all around on this thread, I guess this will be my journal. :)

    I'm still playing around with the layout, but am fairly pleased with this one, except for the right side. I'd like to put in a few mangroves (probably on the left) and some java fern scattered about. I may have some java moss too, but that will depend on the salinity.
