    I want a nice macro algae I can put in my display tank, something that wont go sexual and will look nice.

    Also where do I get it from?

    halimedia is very very nice, but if you don't trim them they will get big very quickly and make new trace branches on all of the other rocks.

    They eat ca like i eat mac-donalds:)

    Good point! It will be interesting to see what algaes come in with imports, I am also looking for algaes that can be used in a setup with Banggais and seahorses.
