The Equalvalent of Plants in Saltwater

I've seen some of thoose anenomes, but I heard they aint so hot (hard to keep) plus the ones I've seen are a little expensive and they're on the move to. So the question is: "is there an equalvalent of FW plants to SW?"

There are many SW plants that can be kept in SW aquaria, anemones are animals, not plants.

Check out >>this<< thread for some more options

Unfortunately they can be rather a challenging to keep for any real length of time. As they are not zooxanthellae animals, scallops must be fed regularly and often times, the size of the food is either too large or too small to be effective in nourishing them.

Others may have had better results, but this one of those "best left in the ocean" animals.

Cheers
Steve

ah man! they were sweet looking, is that marcoalgae does it stay stationary and does it just require good lighting like a plant or do i need to feed it or something as well?

I was just looking at some and i was wondering if any of you know if these types of marcoalgae in paticular are hard to keep:

-Razor
-grape
-feather

it would need a fair amount of light just like most freshwater plants.

Most of the items we keep in our tanks are animals.
