Welcome to the beautiful world of marine macroalgae for the Display Tank & Refugium
Your 1st choice for Sustainable Grown Macroalgae Species in the UK since 2014

Find rare macroalgae species you might not have seen before, as they are often very hard to find and all the classic macroalgae species like Chaetomorpha and Caulerpa for best prices.

We have collected over the last 14 years many different macroalgae species and really fell in love with the different beautiful marine species, which offer stunning colours and a amazing natural look, providing hiding spaces for fishes and critters or Copepods, and providing a natural healthy food source for herbivore fishes but besides of that... they will help to lower the Nitrate and Phosphate levels in the marine aquarium as with their growth they will remove those unwanted nutrients from the tank. creating a more clean water environment for happier fishes and soft / hard corals.

All the macroalgae we sell are from dedicated macroalgae tanks which are fish free and Copper free for disease-free and clean macroalgae. 
This said, they might come with hitchhikers not limited to Copepods and Rotifers, as those beneficial critters love the protected environment of our planted marine tanks.

If you are interested in some fact about macro algae...

Macroalgae are commonly just called Seaweed. Although a lot of macro algae species are edible we sell our macro algae just for the use in the marine aquarium, so please don't be tempted by the tasteful pictures, please.

Macroalgae species are divided into three main algae species groups which are the red, green and brown macroalgae.

The most common and widely available macroalgae species are the green macroalgae. Especially the different varieties of Chaetomorpha & Caulerpa are easily available, as they are successfully used to reduce effectively the Nitrate and Phosphate Level in the aquarium water, to suppress nuisance microalgae, as they often grow very fast and are easy to keep.

The second biggest group are the red macroalgae species, which often grow much slower than the green macroalgae species, but they add beautiful colours to the marine aquarium and especially to the Display Tank and in our opinion, some species are so great looking that they can easily compete with much harder to keep coral species.

The third largest macroalgae group are the brown macroalgae species, which are very rare to get, as they are not very often used, and more often seen as unwanted macroalgae in the marine aquarium.

In addition to a more natural look of the marine aquarium, they will add all the benefits of marine macroalgae, which you can rad more about in our Facts & FAQ part here
