    Hi everyone

    So my tank is coming along nicely(will update my thread). I fell in love with macro algae. I don't have any fish yet but was wondering what fish that will suit a 200l tank would appreciate macro algae? To munch or to live in? So far I have 3 types, all caulerpa.

    Edit : and cheato

    Thanks for any input.

    Your tank is probably too small for any types of tangs. Maybe a small rabbitfish, but it will probably outgrow the tank too

    I know tangs won't work, my tank is 100x40x50. Was just wondering if any other fish would like it?

    most fish who enjoy it will clean out all your algae quickly. :)

    Doe anyone have Caularpa they want to get rid of ? I am maturing an aquarium and I want to put some in my sump. I am on the West Rand , but willing to drive anywhere in Jozi or Pretoria to collect.
