This macroalgae pack for the refugium is a great choice if you are looking for fast growing macroalgae species to lower the Nitrate & Phosphate levels in the marine aquarium. They are smaller live algae frags than the single sold marine algae species but a great choice if you don't want to spend a lot of money. You will get 4 different macroalgae as starter algae frags as stated below. Perfect for the planted refugium.
These will be small frags for just £3.24 each algae species, if you prefer normal sizes we recommend rather to get the algae you prefer directly on our website.

As this refugium macroalgae starter-pack includes Caulerpa macroalgae species please have a look at the Caulerpa Case
Like for most marine macroalgae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition to the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements will improve the growth of this live algae.
If the macroalgae is not growing as expected a special formulated fertiliser for the marine aquarium can help to improve the growth of the macroalgae. Please find a selection of supplements for the marine aquarium HERE
Our macroalgae 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 highly recommend nonetheless that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank.
We aim to offer you the healthiest and best quality macro algae on the market, therefore, all of our macro algae comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Hi Jack. Thank you for your message. When a starter pack is bought together with other macroalgae we will always try to add other macroalgae species for you and we normally pack them as they come.
When you buy two packs it might be that you get some similar algae species.
I would recommend adding macroalgae when the tank is established and you have the fishes already in for a while.
As with them your tank normally will have enough nitrate and phosphate the macroalgae will need to grow. The other nutrients macroalgae will need to grow you normally will have enough when you do normal water changes.
In other words no need for any fertilizer :) Just in a macroalgae only tank, or where nitrate is below 2ppm / or phosphate below 0.02 it will beneficial to use a fertilizer or a special supplement to replace the used nutrients.

The algae received were received in great condition within the time specified. Therefore a great service. The only negative is that I underestimated how small the algae would be. They were only in the tank 24hrs before the fish either ate or shredded them. So a few days on and there is no evidence of them ever being in the tank unfortunately.
Pretty decent stuff0 of 0 people found the following review helpful
Well packaged, arrived covered in a moist covering. Although a lot of mine died I did see growth once the initial melt off. This was meant as a “test” pack for myself so I could see what other refugium plants would do. I will buy again
