I'm impatient, so snail mail is the worst! Lol. But I guess I chose to wait longer for free shipping. Haha. Do you keep your halimeda in a fuge or in your display?

It's growing in my display, I don't have a fuge. Just a hob skilter 400 pro with a built-in skimmer. It came in on one of my live rocks. My blue tuxedo urchin loves to tear off leaves of it and stick it to its back. Lol.

Lol. That's so cool. Do you add anything to keep it growing or does it mostly feed on nitrates and photosynthesis? I've thought about adding some sw plants, I'm just worried about making it look freshwater-ish. I just really miss my planted tanks. Lol.

It's actually a calcareous plant so its photosynthetic and uses calcium.

That's interesting! If I were to add anything, I think it would be something to eliminate nitrates. I don't know much about saltwater plants

I have a couple different kelp plants also. All were hitchhikers. Lol. They just grow. My hermit crabs munch on them from time to time. Lol, I know nothing about keeping them healthy, they just are.

Good to know. Thanks. Maybe I'll put some in my little 2.5 pico when I stock it. I'm not sure it'll be a reef, maybe just a little home for some sexy shrimp or some other invert. So plants would probably be perfect.

Gotta share: This is the most amazing tank I've ever seen. This is in someone's home, which makes it more incredible. I shared the whole thread so that the stats would be available.

Nope. Not only is that NOT the most impressive tank ever, it's not even the most impressive tank in that house. GO TO PAGE 10 of that thread and select the link to his upgrade. Glynn replaced his 8000l tank with an even more impressive 17,000l tank. Around page 7-8 of that other thread he links a video of the beast which is an awesome culmination to the build discussion and pics.

Dude, thanks for the link. It was an incredible read. I tried to post the second link but the phone lost it and I didn't want to go searching again as my phone is acting up.

It's awesome. It would take up my whole house! Lol. The holding ponds were crazy!

You're welcome. It was too great not to share!
