Thread: Macroalgae tank

  1. Default Macroalgae tank


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm setting up a 10 gallon nano atm, which I wanna make as a lower flow macroalgae/nudibranch tank.

    Cliff once showed me this picture:

    There's afew places you can order on-line like the below

    http://live-plants.com/

    http://www.lareefs.com/index.php?mai...&products_id=2

    http://www.reefcleaners.org/index.ph...id=6&Itemid=58

    I've never used those sites so I can't say what those companies are like. I have always been able to have our SW LFS order in what ever I had wanted to try. Just be carful of what CUC you have in the same tank as the macro algae. I've had most of mine eaten by snails and tangs in the past when I have tried various different macro algaes. You might find the below link helpful as well:

    Will do. Also, think I'll transfer my mushrooms there once it's cycled. The SPS tank is just too clean for it, I think.

    Oh, reminds me, I wanted to ask, does mac algae require a different lighting schedule, or is it basically the same as coral? Currently, I run 8 hours actinic, 6 hours full.

    If yours looks half as good when its established you'll be beeming everytime you see it.

    IME, macro algae does best with 6700K lighting and a long photo period, even 18 hours works great. I have found the longer the better for most of the macro algaes.

    You have to be careful tho as some macro algae is low light.
