    Hey all,

    Back, and hiding from the wife :) please can you point me in the right direction for a glorious collection of macro algae - I do need Chaetomorpha and Caulerpa (Fern bubble etc) but am looking for eel grass or somesuch and any colourful grasses/weeds that I can keep alive.

    Will let you know what I am doing with them later :)

    Thanks all

    Marc

    Nobody growing any exotic algae? See lots of algae farmers on the forums, as I once was, in fact I was better growing algae than JacquesB was at growing Aips :)

    I'm also looking Marc...but algaes seem to be in short supply in SA...dont know why LFS's dont order them in more often...I know caulerpa is banned but the others seem to be fine to bring in...
    @robvdv used to have loads of different types in Cape Town...may be that he still has?
