Plants/Macroalgae

Whether you want to setup a refugium, or add diversity to your display tank, plants and macroalgae are an excellent addition if you want to mimic nature at home. They are also a cost effective way to dress your tank with living organisms. Aquascaping with macro algae is becoming very popular in saltwater tanks, and we are proud to offer you a growing number of marine flora. (We carry over 40 species throughout the year, but right now conditions are fairly bad for macroalgae in our area, and selection is at an all time low. We hope to get back up to speed as soon as possible, thank you for bearing with us this season.).
