any ideas for sticking macro to live rock?
Jimmy Lee Lard
Jimmy Lee Lard - 3 years ago
Yes...same happened with my Gracilaria. If you can move it or shade it somehow, that should help.

John Kennedy A little glue should do the trick. Take a look at my video "Attaching Macro Algae" here: https://youtu.be/VtsZLgauGVE

thank you! I'm starting a 35 gallon soon and I'd love some live plant's like this. any more suggestions you could give
Jimmy Lee Lard
Jimmy Lee Lard - 4 years ago
Richard Don Absolutely. I live in a large urban area so my local fish/coral stores get different varieties in from time to time. Otherwise, search "reef macroalgae" on Google and you will find lots of online suppliers. Thanks for watching!

Why do u have to glue it, why don't you just plant it in the sand? And why no fish? :)
RayMondoART
RayMondoART - 5 years ago
yes, certain people use special glue to attach plant rhizome to the media, such as anubias or ferns. probably because they don't want to see the strings hanging... though it doesnt bother me so I tied up mine ^^

+9raymondo9 Lol tq i learned that even in freshwater tanks they glue some plants :)
RayMondoART
RayMondoART - 5 years ago
+Johanan Micaiah because macroalgae is different from true plants, they don't take nutrients from roots, they just have rhizome to attach themselves. also, this is a refugium, a special fishless area to let planktons grow to become natural fish food.

Luis, your timing couldn't have been worse. I recently moved and gave away everything in that tank (and the tank too). Sorry...I would have been glad to send you some! ~Jimmy

Okay...I will look for it. Thanks!

Thanks...no real supplement regimen, but I do add a little crushed fish food every now and then to feed all the little critters (and there are tons of them) and to provide more nutrients for the macro algae as well.
