    What do YOU add first to your cycled reef tank?

    There are many ways to get a reef tank going these days. Curious to hear about your process once cycled. Let’s chat… Personally, with my current build, once the tank was cycled I added some cleanup crew (love Cerith snails) for the diatoms, Chaeto macroalgae (preparing for my first fish...

    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...

    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?

    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...
