macro algae

Hi all.

I am looking at buying some macro algae to help starve out the evil micro algae.

I was wondering if "Red Macro Fauchea Sp." and "Cheatomorph" are good choices. I don't want anything that will fowl my tank or become more of a nuisence than the stupid micro algae.

Also, What are amphipods, and do we like them? One of the algae I placed a bid on said it may come with them.

Chaeto is an excellent choice, not sure on the other, but if it is a macro algae that doesn't go sexual or have pest growth rates it should be fine.

Also, What are amphipods, and do we like them?
One of the small crusteceans the inhabits out tank, most are a good part of the clean up crew and eat detritus, mostly visible at nite while nite diving

Amphipods are the ones that look like ants.
