Macro Algae in the Seahorse Aquarium

Do you like the idea of watching your Seahorse holding onto natural live marine plants like the would do in the Sea in your very own Seahorse Aquarium?

With more than 40 different seahorse species worldwide the possibility to keep seahorse in a home aquarium became over the last years more and more popular. Much more tank breed Seahorse species are widely available within the UK and nowadays the knowledge about how to keep them successfully in a marine aquarium is much more advanced than ever before.

Still, there is a lot of rumours about using marine macro algae for a Seahorse Aquarium, which we would like to explain more specific and with that hopefully, make it more understandable why some marine algae are actually very beneficial for the comfort and health of your Seahorses.

All the 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.

While setting up a seahorse aquarium, it is important that certain things regarding water flow, the oxygen level and the fitting environment are thoughtfully considered, to care about them in the best way possible and to keep them happy and healthy.

As Seahorses will find a big comfort when they can hold them self onto something, the presence of live macro algae in the seahorse aquarium will add in a natural way those beneficial holdfasts for them. Surely you can reach this with artificial plants ar plastic hold fast.

But can this really compete with the beauty of natural living plants in your aquarium?  Having gracile Seahorses full of personality in a beautiful natural looking marine aquarium isn't this answering this question by itself?

Yes, we are mad about macro algae! But the reason why is that we know about all the benefits which come with marine macroalgae for the marine aquarium. And we received from our happy customers so many nice feedbacks and pictures of Seahorses holding onto their new live macro algae, which made us proud and even more confident to recommend you the perfect macro algae for your seahorse tank setup too.

The following marine macroalgae/seaweed species have been proven as very suitable for a seahorse aquarium, as they provide the natural holdfast Seahorses are looking for. 

Some of the marine algae species might grow a bit faster, so please feel free to contact us before you place an order, to find the best marine algae for your seahorse aquarium.

Beside of the natural holdfast, marine macroalgae will provide you as well all the other great benefits, like cleaning the water by reducing not just Nitrate and Phosphate fro the water, and much more which we explain more in our FAQ part about macroalgae.

We hope you enjoy our beautiful marine macroalgae collection for Seahorses and if you have any questions please 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.
