With those four fast-growing marine
They macro 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 any herbivore ( algae eating ) fishes in your aquarium we recommend to keep them away from them for the start by maybe letting them grow in a refugium.
If you buy this Macro Algae Starter Pack in combination with another Algae Pack it might be that you will get the same macro algae again, although we try to avoid this.
As this pack includes Caulerpa species please have a look at the Caulerpa Case
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.

do you recommend a reverse lighting cycle for the sump, ie lights on when the main tank is off, or, 24 hour lighting ? i have just ordered this product to restock my sump after a tank move
Hello. Yes, the reverse lighting cycle is very much recommended to keep a more stable pH, especially when you don't like to have the lights on for 24 hours.
Reverse lighting means, that when the tank lights are going off & the pH starts to drop, the light in your sump turns on and the algae will begin to grow by oxygenating the water & increasing the pH level.
If you run your sump light 24/7 it will constantly be oxygenating the water & then when the tank lights come on this will also raise the pH so you'll have a higher peak which will be normally fine.

Would this be a good choice for low flow chamber in a sump?
Hello. It depends on what you understand of low flow? They don't need a lot of water movement, but when it is too low, you might risk growth of micro algae on the macro algae. With the recommended water turnover for the sump between 6-10 of the tank capacity, they will be absolutely fine.
Really, really impressed with the service and the lovely sea plants. I ordered a basic delivery package but was warned with Covid it would run late. I took their advice and paid a few more pounds for the fast delivery. My plants arrived and were packed to perfection, with a small but effective heat pad. 1 week on and I have roots forming and growth. Great company, highly recommended.
I have ordered several times from https://www.livealgae.co.uk/ and this was the worst one. Also, it seems only three kinds rather than four and all of them look very sad. I was very disappointed.
They arrived not in water like before and they looked not very happy at all when they arrived and they are struggling to recover. It looks like they may die.
The attached photos were taken when they arrived.
Absolutely over the moon with the customer service and macroalgae received
Postage and service very good. Would use the company again. However the TM Algae added to an establish system soon turned white, after reading the link about it possibly going sexual, it was removed straight away. I am no expert but I had noticed it had grown and wasnt prepared to chance it at all if it was going sexual.
