Red Macroalgae Species

Welcome to the beautiful world of marine macro algae for the Display Tank & Refugium
Your 1st choice for Sustainable Grown Macroalgae Species in the UK since 2014

Find rare red macroalgae species you might not have seen before, as they are often very hard to find like Gracilaria and Halymenia for best prices.

Red marine macroalgae species are a great choice for almost any type of marine aquarium setup as most of them grow slow to medium fast and as they do not attach themselves. Therefore they belong to the non-invasive algae species.  

The best macroalgae choice to use in a Nano-Aquarium, Seahorse tank, Reef Aquarium and especially there in the best algae for the Display Tank. Surely they can be kept in the sump/refugium as well, but when you see them, you don't want to hide them there surely :)

Some varieties of the red macro algae are so beautiful that they can easily compete with some corals, so it is no wonder that they are some of the most highly sought after marine macroalgae species.

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

The Top Seller of our Red Marine Macro Algae collection:

Blue Ochtodes ( which will attach itself ). These algae look just brilliant in the Display Tank and offer a perfect space for Copepods and Rotifers.  Ochtodes Sp. 

Botryocladia - Red Grape is one of our favourites. It can grow easily but slowly 30-40 cm long and with its red grapes, it will quickly become an attraction by itself in any marine aquarium. Seahorses love to hold onto these macroalgae, and they just look even more amazing :) Red Grape Algae

Halymenia macro algae species. We have at the moment for sale the Dragon's Tongue. A stunning looking red macroalgae species, which will again be anyone's favourite in the marine aquarium. Perfect fitting for the Display Tank, non-invasive and very Seahorse friendly. Halymenia Sp. Dragons Tongue
