Saltwater Plants

Saltwater Plants ( aka macroalgae ) are a great natural way of maintaining the right balance in your aquarium. Besides being a natural way of keeping your aquarium clean, the marine plants ( macroalgae ) also provide a second important role, keeping your aquarium healthy. The addition of saltwater plants increases the availability of microscopic fauna, such as Copepod's and Amphipods. Both popular food for reef fish and seahorses that depend on all the sea plants for their survivability. With all these benefits its important for every marine aquarium to include macroalgae (saltwater plants). A simple advantage no marine ecosystem is complete without.

Special Note: Our Saltwater Plants ( aka macroalgae ) are quarantined, then placed in large vats NOT connected to any fish system, to avoid possible parasite or bacteria contamination. You can place our marine plants directly into your tank without worry.
