Now that's good timing they just sprouted! i brought in 40 mangrove pods I planted 10 in my brackish and 10 in fresh they all rooted very quickly and this morning the leaves sprouted on the fresh water ones the brackish look to be about a week behind guess the salt slows them down as well my fresh tank "planter is a modified hang on back filter hooked up to my turtle tank, in the reptile room the air and water temps are slightly higher might also play a roll in the faster growth. But over all I'm happy with the results and have no losses,
