Macroalgae

Our Clean Macroalgae is aquacultured in large vats not connected to any fish system to avoid possible parasite or bacteria contamination. You can place our macroalgae directly in your tank without worry.

Macroalgae remove excess toxic nutrients, such as nitrate's and phosphate's that normally build up in the aquarium water. By keeping the aquarium water low in nutrients nuisance algae such as Bryopsis and Valonia are unable to grow. Then there's marine life benefits. First of all the nutrients are toxic and harm the long term survival of your marine fish. And there's more. The macroalgae kept in the aquarium or refugium are a healthy food source for all the herbivorous fish such as Tangs and Angelfish. Nutritional benefits include improved coloration and energy. Marine fish feeding on the plants and macroalgae gain additional beta-carotene, which strengthens their immune system, providing a natural defense against bacterial infections and illness such as Head and Lateral Line Erosion (HLLE) and marine ich.
