    hey guys.

    i wanna grow some macro algae. for two reasons:

    1) Look nice

    2) for nutrient export

    wanting it in my display.

    i already have some caluepra, but im running into some problems.. the macro algea is being slowly covered by red algae. by tank is still young.. what should i do to prevent my caleupra dying?

    What type of red algae? Can only think that the flow over the caluerpa might be too weak.
