macro = big and is short for macro algae, so you want to feed them leafy algaes.

live macro are the plants...chaeto, caulerpas and the like. Instead of live, you can also feed dried sheets of nori or other seaweeds. These are fed usually stuck in a clip on the side of the tank for the fish to pick at.

obviously it is not the same as "live" but it will accomplish the same thing.

It's good for them but it's not the same in that it's not live. Live macro, like already mentioned grows in the tank or refuge. If I understand your original question.
