Ulva Macroalgae, Aquacultured




Ulva Macroalgae is also called Sea Lettuce algae


Description: Ulva Macroalgae is also called Sea Lettuce algae. The scientific name is Ulva lactuca. There are a lot of good reasons to incorporate Ulva macroalgae into one’s marine aquarium system. The usual stated purpose is for the removal of excess nutrients such as nitrate and phosphate that build up in the tank's water. By keeping the aquarium water low in nutrients nuisance algae's such as Bryopsis and Valonia are unable to grow. Ulva is also the perfect addition to saltwater aquariums in need of cover for both fish and invertebrates. It also serves as a good food source for hungry herbivores such as Yellow Tangs, Blue Hippo's, etc.. Easy to grow in either your refugium or in your main aquarium. Both Amphipods and copepods grow well in an ulva algae filled refugium. It is a thin flat green algae somewhat ruffled and often torn. It may reach up to 7 inches or more in length, though generally much less, and up to 12 inches across. The membrane grows attached to rocks or other algae by a small disc-shaped holdfast. Ulva algae is found in the ocean's shallows of rocky areas around reefs. An easily cared for green macroalgae, Ulva is a perfect algae for saltwater aquarium refugiums.
