With 4 different marine macro algae species out of our algae variety, you will get a great start for your very own marine macro algae tank.
They algae frags you will receive will be smaller than the single algae species we sell, but they will give you nonetheless a great possibility to successfully start your very own macro algae culture.
A perfect choice if you like to see your algae growing and thriving in your tank.
If you have algae eating fishes in your aquarium we recommend to keep them away from them for the start.
If you buy more than one of this Algae Starter Set and or in combination with another Algae Set we offer it might be that you will get the same macro algae again, although we try to avoid this.
Please have in mind that this offered starter pack will include algae which we will choose for you and that the algae shown on the picture are just an example of the selection of beautiful marine macro algae we offer within the UK.
Our macro algae are from fish free macro algae tanks, although we use sometimes pictures for demonstration purposes only which will include fishes, seahorses and or corals.
We 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, not limited to Copepods, Rotifers etc. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can still stay hidden, especially in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts.
We want you to be fully happy with your new algae addition. Therefore we offer you a hassle free Satisfaction Guarantee.
If you are not 100% happy with the macroalgae you received on arrival we will refund you the full money back *1.
We even will cover the return costs. The refund will be offered after we arrived and checked the returned algae.
*1 = Valid for UK Orders only, please see our Terms for EU orders HERE

I just have a general question
I was hoping you could help with. Ive order some macroalgae from you with the hopes of growing it in my main display as a way of nutrient export and safe haven for copepods to eventually get a manadrin.
But I do have a baby scopias tang my question is will he devour this by himself before it gets a chance to grow? I know every fish / tank is different just wondered what you thought as a expert on algae.
Good morning and Thank you for contacting us.
As you already mentioned by yourself all fishes are different. But from the experience and feedback we have received most Tang Fishes often go for almost all macroalgae they can find :)
Especially macro algae species like the Red Grape and Ochtodes seem to be very delicious for them.
A better chance of surviving seem to have algae species like Codium, Cryptonemia Crenulata, Caulerpa Prolifera and sometimes Caulerpa Racemosa ( last very much depends on the individual fish ) though.
A generell rule seem to be as more soft or easy to break up as tastier. Calcareous macro algae seem to survive as well better in an Tang fish environment.
Maybe it is a good idea to order our starter set, as it is the cheapest way to see what you Tang fish likes and what not ?
Hope this helps.
Wish you still a nice day and we are looking forward hearing from you.

Hi I have a nano tank with a lighting strip which has 40 COB LED's, 7W, LUX 1900, COLOUR TEMP 7500K.. What would be the most suitable algae?
In this case, we would recommend

If you have a tank like mine with seahorses, live rock etc.. what safe clean up crew can you use ? What algae eaters will not eat the macro algae ?
Thank you for your message.
With most members of the cleanup crew, you don't really need to worry about.
We use in our algae tanks all kinds of snails and crabs, to keep it all clean, without any problem. Just when it comes to sea hares, conches or urchins you will become problems.
My personal favourites are the spinny Star Astraea, Cerith Snail, black-legged turbo snail, scarlet red-legged hermit cran, and electric blue ones and Turbo Snail.
I hope this helps.

Hi, Do you post out to Belfast, Northern Ireland. Or is there an additional charge for this. Thanks,
Hello Neil. Thank you for your interest. Yes we do post to Northern Ireland too,

Are these suitable for tropical tanks?
I am afraid
First class macro algae, great selection and even better service
Had to wait a few days longer than mentioned due to weather conditions but worth the wait. Will definitely be buying again.
First time order from here, good selection of 4 different types of algae. One of the samples was much bigger than the rest, the caulerpa serrulata I think, so I guess that is a more common or faster growing algae. Very happy with the other three varieties.
Will probably order specific types next time.
Very good service with dispatch time, delivery and packaging.
I recommend and will use again.
this is my first order, the starter pack appear to be smaller than expected, these are frag size, but great variety and high quality.
Yes, fantastic I'll buy more soon. I had a problem with aquarium and plants disintegrate. I'LL be buying more again soon
