    Hey guys, I'm down at the West Coast

    Was wondering if one could take some of the macroalgae and use it in our tanks? I don't know about the temp difference?

    Anyone ever tried.......

    Hardly anything from there will survive tropical temps. Maybe Ulva (sea lettuce).

    Just remeber that when the tide comes in that water in the pools gets cooled down again. So the algae isnt exposed to the warm water permanently. Personally i wouldnt do it
