Red Mangrove


New Dawn Aquaculture

Rhizophora mangle

The Red Mangrove Tree of the genus Rhizophora grows in the upper end of the intertidal waters of the tropical oceans of the world. The mangrove trees reproduce by either forming seeds about the size of a hazelnut, or by producing a propagule which is dropped from the tree allowing it to root. The form that we are offering is the propagule, which has proven to be much hardier for the aquarium than the seed. The propagule is approximately 6 to 8 inches in length and looks similar to a candle
