Mangroves will help reduce levels of nitrates etc. But on a small scale, it takes a lot of mangroves to really see any difference. (every little bit helps though)

so basically, yes, looks neat.

you can put shrimp in there but they are better off in the display. I have an anthias that surfed my overflow and currently lives in my fuge. seems fat and healthy.

jbd_3_1, I would recommend using snails and hermits rather than shrimp. They do a better job at cleaning. A shrimp wouldn't hurt at all.

jbd_3_1, I didn't mean to say, "I snail would hurt at all." I meant to say, "A shrimp wouldn't hurt at all. I corrected myself. Sorry about that.
