Ulva Lactuca - Official Algae of the Year 2015

Light
These macro algae like the light but is fine with medium strong light conditions too.

Palatable
Very palatable and a great natural source for your fishes etc. Our tang loves it, so keep some algae for example in the sump to let it grow back again.

Attaching
As it eventually will attach itself to rock after a long time, we recommend to start with to glue it on a piece of rock to keep it in position. It is very easy to trim by just removing the excessive algae. It forms smooth discs and grows in larger chunks, which can attach themselves to rock etc.

Trimming
Clear parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.

Treatment
Like for most marine macro algae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition to the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements will improve the growth of this algae.

Please note
It is often known as Sea Lettuce and popular as a salad etc. But we sell these algae just to use in the marine aquarium!

Please note
We go do our best to quarantine, treat and remove any unwanted hitchhikers, parasites etc from our macro algae. But we can not guarantee that the algae are completely free of anything unwanted. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can be still stay hidden in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts. 
We highly recommend therefore that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank. 

The images on this page are for example only, actual product appearance may vary.

We aim to offer you the healthiest and best quality macro algae on the market. 
All of our macro algae we sell comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Within minutes my Tang eat all of it.

Shop owner reply (May 10, 2018):
Hi.

I a,m sorry to hear this.


Unfortunately, this algae is very palatable for herbivore fishes, like Tangs. We recommend therefore to place it in an area they can't reach or to place it in the sump, to let it grow, and feed it time to time to the fishes.

Please contact us, and we will find for sure a solution.

Kind regards
