Correct me if I'm wrong but is it not the same thing as having them in your sump? The idea of having corals and macros in our tanks is done with the idea that corals eat certain nutrients from our tanks but not all so we supplement with a refugium and macro algae to take up more of them. Having them planted in a display is not a concept I really like the idea of but I think water quality would be quite good.Hi all,
Both of these folks are exactly what I was thinking (not like that would mean anything, I am also thinking about unicorns )
From the water quality side. I think we should take a step back and look at it like a lawn. I have said soooooo many times, our tanks need to replicate an environment. Different algae have different requirements like cold season grasses are different than florida Bermuda grass. They can work together if properly done.
From a feeding standpoint, my tangs love Cheeto (did that on purpose to see if you reading). My thoughts again are if we are putting a macro in our tank we want it to have the environment to survive, but also serve a purpose.
Anyway, I reached my rambling limit. Hope I made sense
