    I just got 20 or so mangroves and I'm just wondering what everyone uses to keep them out of the water and in place.

    My pods are too small they fall through. Rubber bands may work.

    Pool noodle slices work with a rubber band around them

    I would assume so, I just used a chunk of white sheet that I had left over from another project. But seeing that people use the denser purple one to ship frags, I would assume it is okay to.
