Anyone have success in making a cage to contain their sea lettuce in the sump so it doesn't float over (smother) the other macroalgaes or clog the sump grates? We have sea lettuce, red ogo, and pom pom from Algae Barn. Pros/Cons, and ideas to ensure success? I'm not thrilled with the ogo, but the pom and the lettuce are growing great.

Egg crate, set so that it reaches over the water height might work, confining it to a predetermined area. Or you could set some rubble on top of large pieces of the Ulva so that it stays there. Rubber banding it to rubble also works out for smaller pieces, but I haven't seen much attachment to rocks unfortunately.

Regarding the ogo, it brightens up considerably, the only problem is that you have to rubber band macros like frags, and they're freaking slippery little devils. But so, so pretty once it finally bushes out.
