    For sale String of Pearls Macro!!!

    I still have a whole lot of my String of Pearls algae! It's too beautiful to just trim and throw away! Anything I send out won't just be a single strand of the algae as most branches also have 1-3 other branches growing off of it as well. PRICES: I decided to sell pieces about 5-6 inches long...

    Macroalgae in display!?

    Please share your experience and photos if you have them! I am loving this look and concept. Already ordered some red grape caulerpa I am planning on just keeping a simple soft coral tank so they should benefit from this environment, right? Thanks!

    Where did all the Turtleweed/Maiden's hair algae (Chlorodesmis) go?

    I thought Turtleweed/Maiden's hair algae (Chlorodesmis) was quite a popular macroalgae a few years back, but it never seems to be available anymore. What happened? Does this have to do with recent collection bans in the Indo-Pacific region (but isn’t Chlorodesmis also native to the Caribbean)?

    What are your thoughts on Grid Filters?

    Note: I do not intend to use one on my current system, but I might consider them for a smaller project. Lately, I have seen these “Grid Filters” doing the rounds in the freshwater hobby. Though their capacity and flow rate would likely be quite low, they seem like an interesting way to...

    Hey guys, I’m Bean, a sarcastic, gimpy, old broad-combat veteran turned shepherdess with a whole lot of sass and not nearly enough spare time. I used to be deep into reefing, from the late eighties through the early 2000’s, but I had to break down my reef and give my corals to locals when I...

    Can I Eat My Tank's Macroalgae?

    In all seriousness, is is it safe to harvest and eat macroalgae from my own aquarium, specifically members of the Ulva genus (and possibly Caulerpa lentillifera in the future)? Is there something they would contain after having grown in my aquarium that would make them inedible or would a...

    What Green Macroalgae is this?

    Does anyone have an idea what this green macroalgae is? I obtained it a month ago on some LFS live rock (which I assume originated from the Indo-Pacific when wild live rock was more popular). Since then, it has doubled in size, having grown to an inch across. It is smooth, and stiff yet is very...

    Treating Bryopsis and Valonia as Desirable Macroalgae?

    We have all heard about strenuous, frustrating battles against the Sea fern (Bryopsis sp.) and Bubble algae (Valonia sp.), but can they be viewed in a positive light? I have heard, on a few occasions, that Bryopsis and Valonia are excellent additions to planted marine aquariums for their...

    This loaf is about to set out on an adventure... I guess it's time for me to begin my first build thread. After suffering way too long with my previous (first) build (a temperate system with freshwater rocks and sand as well as a HOB filter that never left the diatom phase), I decided to...

    Any experience with sargassum?

    A few weeks ago I accidentally brought home a sargassum crab Portunus sayi, with some water from the beach. I had one before, so I knew he needed his own tank. They eat everything. He's in a bucket for now, with a little HOB filter. I got him some sargassum, which slowly died, and he ate it. I...

    Asterina and Macroalgae?

    I've set up a nano macro tank to grow out some algae for the 200 gallon tank. We picked up some true live rock and it came with this little guy. Looks like an asterina to me. I've seen anecdotes of some specimens munching on corals, but very few reports about their interactions with macro. He's...

    Here to show off! Set up this 5 gallon AIO on Tuesday, the star of the show is meant to be the macroalgae, however, it is seemingly pretty sparse. Just wait for it to fill in!

    Vibrant and Macroalgae - Poll

    Many of us with refugiums and macroalgae use Vibrant occasionally to tackle a troublesome nuisance algae outbreak. You're supposed to take your macroalgae out before you dose Vibrant. However, it's unclear (at least to me) how long after last Vibrant dose you can put the macroalgae back in...
