What macroalgae would you recommend to lower my nitrate & phosphate levels in my tank?

For an effective and fast nutrients export in the marine tank, which means the reduction of the nitrate and phosphate in the marine aquarium water, we recommend mainly macroalgae which will grow fast, like a lot of Caulerpa macroalgae species.

You will find them here:


Our other macroalgae species will take nutrients out of the water as well, but as they often grow slower they will take out less nitrate and phosphate than the recommended fast growing macroalgae species. On the other hand, those slow growing macroalgae species are often non-invasive and therefore better qualified to use them in a marine display tank.

If you have any questions to choose the right macroalgae for your marine aquarium please don't hesitate to contact us.
