Macroalgae Variety Pack- Aquarium Grown- Mix of at Least 5 Different Species:

Listing is for ~3-4 cups of at minimum 5 species of marine Macroalgae
Portions for each species will vary and depend on the grow rate in an aquarium, and I'll always be sure to include at least a small amount of a unique/rarer macro. As a reference,if all things go wellone variety pack should be able to establish a 5 gallon nano tank or a small refugium in a few months time.
When receiving macroalgae simply float the bag for about 15-20 minutes then attach the macros to their desired positions.I find ziptie-ing them to an inverted frag plug and then jamming/gluing them to the rockwork the is best way of attaching macros, because you can always cut and re-tie them without damaging them (unlike with superglue).
As I stand in solidarity with my fellow Californian reefers,NO Caulerpawill be sent or used as filler with any order to any state.
Most macroalgae are pretty adaptable, so long as you have them under a full spectrum white light and keep up with your regular water changes they'll do just fine!......
But let's face it, if you're anything like me you keep macroalgae because you despise water changes. If you only do irregular or (god foroffer) no water changes, then I advise (that apart from salinity, Ca, Mg, KH) you keep an eye on your Iron, Potassium, Iodine, and trace element levels. You should also try not to bottom out your Nitrate and Phosphate levels for too long either (don't starve your macros).
Here's a run down of what I generally keep my parameters at:
  • Salinity: 1.023-1.025SG
  • Temperature: 68-80F**
  • Lighting: 100-300μmol/s/m2@ 6,000-10,000K
  • Nitrate: 10-20ppm
  • Phosphate: 0.05-0.1ppm
  • Potassium: 400-420ppm
  • Alkalinity: 9-12 dKH
  • Magnesium: 1350-1450ppm
  • Calcium: 450-500ppm
  • Iron: 0.25-0.5ppm
  • Iodine: ~0.05ppm***
**Temperature shifts should be done gradually. For example during the winter my main tank reaches an average of 68F with 65F being the coldest point in the pump chamber. Then as the months go by and seasons progress it can reach around 80F during the summer. I wouldn't advise going over 84F as it will severely impact the growth of some species like codium and sargassum.
***Most of these trace elements can be covered by using Brigthwell's ChaetoGro and mixing in a little extra iron on the side.
In reality, you don't have to strictly adhere to my parameters. Given enough time macroalgae will adapt to their environment.DISCLAIMER
Due to the small size of my operation, I can't guarantee live arrival. However please do take a photo of the unopened package and after that one more of the contents within 1-2 hours of delivery; then Imayissue a refund if there is damage to the plantandthe bags are broken.
Macroalgaes in particular tend to handle shipping poorly. If your algae looks a bit pale or limp, don't worry they'll recover in no time.
Please keep in mind the current weather in your area before ordering. I ship plants with paper insulation; which will be defeated by a hot mailbox or frozen porch if left unattended for too long.
