Green Macro Algae for the Marine Aquarium

The green macro algae species are often the so-called "hard worker" of all marine macro algae species.

They often grow very fast and are therefore perfect for reducing the Nitrate and Phosphate Level in the marine aquarium effectively.

But this comes with a price, as they are often a more invasive macro algae species, which means that they will attach themselves to your rock work, which will need more of your attention to keep them restricted.
Although they will add a great natural look to the marine aquarium. 

Quite often the green macro algae species are kept in a sump to keep them restrained and to use the great ability to remove nutrients fast out of the aquarium water.

All our algae we sell are from our special Algae Tanks setups which are kept without any fishes for a disease free and premium quality. This said, the might come with hitchhikers not limited to Copepods and Rotifers, as those beneficial critters love the protected environment of our planted marine tanks.

The green algae species belong to the family Chlorophyta and are the third largest marine macroalgae species with over 1500 different species, but the number one when it comes to used macro algae in the marine aquarium hobby. 

Beside of the fast phosphate and nitrate removal ability, a lot of species grow very fast and they are therefore much more widely available than the often much slower growing red macroalgae species.

Caulerpa Case
Some Caulerpa macroalgae species might go sexual, which means that it releases gametes and tissue into the aquarium water. This can lead to an uncontrolled growth of this algae in your tank, as most of the Caulerpa species are invasive, which means they will attach themselves to rock etc, it will be harder to remove them out of the tank.

Although this said, we never had in 14 years any issue with this algae species, and it was one of our first macroalgae species we got. One thing to avoid this is to provide good light and to remove pale turning parts of it.

We hope you enjoy our beautiful green marine macroalgae collection and if you have any questions don;t hesitate to contact us.

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.
