    Good Day,

    Because I am still learning I read that Coralline Alage is a must for your tank. Can you buy this from pet shop? (it seems that I do have some on my life rock but it may not be enough).

    Welcome greenie,coralline algae normally grows on the liverock in ur tank over time.
    U could go and buy liverock that is already covered in coralline.

    I wouldnt say that it is a must have in a tank tho

    Coralline Algae is not a must. Once you have your water parameters in check, it will automatically grow. :)
