Marcoalgae is awesome, and not only because of their nutrient removal abilities. We love macro algae for its ease of maintenance, cool growth forms and colors and we’re even more fond of macro algae displays. This display refugium of nano-reef user Metrokat is no exception, hosting a spectacular variety of algae including Sargassum, Ochtodes, Halimeda, Halymenia, Botryocladia, Chaetomorpha, and Caulerpa Serrulata among others.
The display refugium is plumbed into a 34 gallon Redsea Max (which was featured as December tank of the month at nano-reef) and is illuminated by Ecoxotic Panorama Pro modules which are run in reverse of the main display. For more information on the system check out Metrokat’s build thread.
