Live Algae UK - Your aquamarine algae farm in West Yorkshire. 

We are specialised in marine macroalgae with an experience of over 16 years.
Selling clean & premium macro algae within the UK & EU 

All our Seaweed / Macro algae have been grown to the highest quality standards. Our philosophy is 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 macroalgae species we have for sale are sustainably grown in the UK. New macro 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 macroalgae to eliminate the need to source this marine algae e species again in the future.

How did we start to discover our passion for marine macroalgae:

Our passion for marine macro algae was born many years ago when we got a nice Yellow Tang. Surely a common 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.

How to achieve better macroalgae growth?

Macroalgae don't need a lot to grow, just good lighting and enough nutrients.

Should you already have good lighting for your macroalgae but the growth is not as it should be, maybe there are some nutrients missing in your aquarium water which it need to grow?
