Refugium Fast Growing Nitrate & Phosphate Remover Macroalgae Algae-Pack

    Refugium Macroalgae Starter-Set


    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.

    Refugium Nitrate & Phosphate Remover Macroalgae Starter Pack

    Premium Marine Macro algae for the Planted Reef Display Tank & Refugium for sale on Live Algae UK.
    Your 1st choice for clean Marine Macroalgae from Fish & Copper free tanks since 2014.

    You will receive a selection of 4 fast growing macroalgae species for a successful start:

    For example out of:

    We will pack a selection of fast-growing macroalgae for you which will be perfect for the nutrients export and perfect for to place in a macroalgae refugium.

    With those four fast growing marine macroalgae species you will get a great start to reduce the Nitrate and Phosphate levels in your marine aquarium.

    The marine 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 macroalgae culture.

    A perfect choice if you like to see your new algae species 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 Macroalgae Starter Pack in combination with another algae pack it might be that you will get the same macroalgae again, although we try to avoid this.

    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 


    Please note
    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. 

    All macroalgae will be thoroughly dipped in a professional solution to deactivate hitchhikers as good as possible before posting. If you don't want this, please send us a message together with your order.

    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.

      hello, just getting into marine and macroalgae. I am looking at buying the starter pack of 4 you sell and then pick 2 other ones but I don't want the same ones to come in the pack than I pick, which ones come in the set or is it random? And what hap ...

      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.

    Algae Pack

    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 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.

    Hi.We are sorry to hear that you have experienced a problem with your order.Unfortunately due to the current problematic times of the Coronavirus Royal Mail does not guarantee a delivery time currently for the Royal Mail First Class. Although we know how hard they work and as much as we appreciate their work a lot in those tough times this is unfortunately not great  for perishable items like our macro algae.It still looks like that Royal Mail can not  provide everywhere the First Class next working day delivery as before and we had around 15% of our deliveries delayed or not arriving after 4 working days at all.  Knowing this we have therefore marked the Royal Mail delivery currently as not recommended and highlighted the express delivery option at the checkout.In addition to this we have send you as well an extra email before posting the macro algae out to you and recommended either to use the express delivery option as in those uncertain times UPS still delivers very often already the next working day or to refund you the money, as the risk was very high that the algae might not arrive in perfect condition at yours.As we have not heard back from you and to avoid any further delay we have posted the algae as chosen via Royal Mail First Class to you.Unfortunately the delivery times are out of our control and we tried to do everything possible to avoid any disappointment by highlighting this problem.Still we do understand your disappointment and have refunded your money out of goodwill.We hope times will go back to normal soon and that Royal Mail can deliver again as fast as they used to do and maybe you will give us another chance in the future again.ManfredLivealgae UKBTW we can assure you as well that we have added 4 macro algae species in this pack and of course different algae species will be packed different, but as they have damaged in transport it will be surely hard to identify the single algae. species.As we have very good results with the packaging of the Nitrate remover starter pack in a wet tissue and heat sealed this is normally a good way for two days like this. but unfortunately not much longer.
