    I’ve just found this site that looks quiet good for anyone in the UK/Europe

    https://www.livealgae.co.uk/

    I’ve just ordered some Botryocladia algae as the others red ones were out of stock.

    I’ll grow some in my new toy, sorry the Genesis Refugium and when it’s big enough add it to the display as it’s not invasive. Oh and the fish could well eat it so I need some extra before I add it.

    There are all sorts of pretty non invasive types, it’s a whole new world........

    The new refugium has been in place for a few weeks now and the Caulerpa Prolifera is growing quiet well.

    Here’s a few pictures

    This is the refugium box and miracle mud

    And here are some pictures of the Caulerpa Prolifera, the small polyps open and close alternatively and it’s quiet fascinating to watch...

    Forgive the pictures but it’s through the sump glass..

    And here are the roots

    And this is a Red Birds Nest algae that they offered as the one I ordered was regrowing. The intention with this is to grow it a little bigger and then break some off and put it into the main display, it’s non invasive, but I’m growing some extra in case the fish eat it!

    I’m currently avoiding the miserable English weather in my home in spain, and this is a picture of the 9th hole of my golf course in spain. A par 3 or as I prefer to play it a par 5 !

    And let me tell you, it’s very very pleasant!
