Macroalgae can be really gorgeous, especially the red imo. The dragon's breath is my favorite, but I have yet to buy some. I really like the Eucheuma Spinosum (red) portieria sp. (more orangish) and the red grape. I have a lot of different types and the marine plants that require calcium (like the H. Opuntia & C. Barbata) aren't as hardy in my experiences. Any type of caulerpa can take over fast so be aware. I got all my plants at live-plants.com. They have great portions for the price. Much cheaper than anywhere else I've found.

That's really helpful thanks.


And about putting plants in the HOB, I did that in my 60 gallon freshwater. I used pothos vines. It worked extremely well. I just don't want to mess with an extra light about the aquarium. Especially on a saltwater tank

I would recommend the shaving brush and mermaid fan hear in Florida we can harvest up to a gallon a day when your diving and I have kept both and they do extremely well and even reproduce quick ,but the hermits will eat them if you have them ...

Actually, Halimeda does use calcium, but also other nutrients. I prefer bubble caulerpa.
