Huge amount of healthy macroalgae

So after seeing Berlibee's post about the red sampler pack he got from Gulf Coast Eco Systems, I ordered a red sampler pack (and one for a friend!) but also some extra botrycladia, two different types of gracilia, chaeto and caulerpa prolifera. I now have TONS of healthy macro algae both in my display, sump and temp seahorse tank. Definitely recommend them if you are looking for some very generous healthy different types of macro.


I did still do a freshwater dip though! You would be proud of me JoeCreature and BMW!

TY Kim for the Awesome Macro (and Berlibee for finding the source). The sampler pack was huge (even a snail and blue leg hermit)! Kim was VERY generous with some extra Gracilaria, dragons breath and botrycladia(s?)!! So TY TY TY TY TY!!!

How easy is it to keep c. Prolifera under control in the display?

It's not too bad Reeffreak. It takes hold in the sand with runners. So you can basically pull it on one end and it will pull out a string of it. Bad description but hopefully you get what I mean.
