Livealgae UK is a small aquamarine algae farm in Leeds. 

We are specialised in marine macro algae with an experience of 
more than 15 years.

All our Seaweed / Marine Plants have been grown to the highest quality standards. Our philosophy is a sustainable farming with consideration for the environment.  We use energy efficient light sources and insulated tanks to keep the energy consumption as low as possible.

Most algae we sell are sustainably grown in the UK. New algae species which we might need to import from abroad, as there is no UK source available, will be kept in quarantine until it is proven safe.
Our aim is to sell primarily the new growth of those algae to eliminate the need to source this alga again in the future.

How did we start to discover our passion for marine macro algae:

Our passion for marine macro algae was born many years ago when we got a nice Yellow Tang. Surely a common fish algae eating fish, but a beautiful one with a sweet personality. Unfortunately, after some time we've noticed that he became more and more aggressive towards the other fishes when it came to food. 

So we started to give him dried Nori seaweed to keep him calm, as all Tang species and some other herbivore fishes, they will need up to 75% of their daily fish food diet with marine algae, to stay healthy. Providing him dried seaweed worked quite very well. He loved it, and soon became the friendly little character we first knew.

What means "Regrowing"?

When a macro algae species sells well we have sometimes to take it out of the sale as it will need time to regrow again.

The time for this will vary, as some macro algae species will grow very slow, whilst other - especially various  Caulerpa marine macro algae species grow quite fast.
