MACRO INFORMATION

The way macroalgae is viewed in the saltwater hobby has changed dramatically over the past few years.  In the past, the only time aquarists would discuss algae, it was in terms of how to avoid or get rid of the ugly types growing on glass or covering coral.  The more that we learn about the benefits that macro-algae provide to an aquarium, the less we cringe at the mention of “algae” and are starting to explore different ways to use them for the good of the aquarium.  The following links will take provide a ton of information, but if you have further questions, please join the forum and ask!
