Primarily Caulerpa's. Mainly green grape,
a thin feathery one I believe may be Palmetto
(referred to as that by shrimpers off of Tampa),
and Prolifera (grows prolifically, found near Coca,
Florida). Those are all pure saltwater. However they
do well in about half fresh, and half salt.
I consider brackish about 50/50 like a mangrove swamp
- changing 25% with alternating pure salt, then fresh.
They are like a grass and perform the same as a lawn grass.
If I have way too much nitrates, and am in a hury,
I place old organics around the Caulerpas roots.
Just as old organics (compost) remove nitrogen from soil
requiring more fertilizer high in nitros,
they also remove nitro from water making them more
readily available as food for the Caulerpas.
Hyacinths do tolerate high levels of salt too.
You might be amazed at how tolerant and well many
natural systems work. I can provide exact data from
my tests a few years ago if you wish. Good luck.
