    I am currently cycling my 55 gallon tank which has 30lbs of live sand and 40lbs of dry rock. This tank is going to be a macro algae display tank with some fish in the system. I was wondering if anyone may have any ideas on the stocking of a macro algae tank? I know that I am not able to have...

    Who when we talk about mixed tank have macro-algae with their coral. Is it more difficult or easier to maintain. I'm thinking of the ideal because i'll have tangs and they used to eat the macro's i use to give them from my refugium. So i see it as a pro what would be the cons.

    I bought some macro alage the other day (Chaeto and dragons breathe) and it is now dead. I figured it would live in my tank. I have 2 coral life 50/50 bulbs for a total of 20Watts. I thought that would of been good enough for the macro alage to survive. All specs are good, amoniia, nitrite...

What i need help with is deciding whether to add the 55 straight to my existing system and add macroalgae as i go or if i should run the 55 independently...

    Hey Everyone, Over the past 6-8 months I have been working changing the theme of my aquarium. What used to be a reef has been dismantled and started over as a seahorse tank. What started as a simple concept has really evolved into an obsession. I have become extremely interested in macro algae...

    I will keep it simple ... From your experience, do you feel the need to put beneficial Macro Algae onto a sump? Having a Macro algae, means it needs probably a LR, which in turn, convert it to a fuge. Do you see the benefit of having a fuge compared to a sump? I could see few legends here...

    Yesterday I picked up a few new corals. Can you just confirm that this is a lobo? That's what it was labeled but it doesn't quite look like what I've found on lobos. And can anyone ID this? I think it is some sort of macro algae. It is a little redder than the picture shows. Possibly red...

    I'll be setting up a unplumbed shallow cube (20x20x12) this Friday. The plan for this system will be mostly LPS and a very low fish load of just 1 or 2 smaller sized fish. The tank will also have a large variety of macro algae such as HALIMEDA, CYMOPOLIA, GRACILARIA, EUCHEUMA, BOTRYOCLADIA, and...
