    Hi all,

    I am currently looking for a refugium macro algae pack or bits from various people from South Africa.

    This includes but is not limited to the following species:

    * Euchema
    * Turtle Grass
    * Halimedia Plant
    * Shaving Brush Plant
    * Mermaid fan
    * Porteria
    * Green Spificeria
    * Fern Codium
    * Red Gracilaria
    * Chaeto
    * Fern Plant
    * Caulerpa: Grape / Mexicana / Prolifera/ Cuppressides or Red Grape
    * Gracilaria
    * Lettuce
    * Codium

    These kind of packs freely available in the States but are not shipping to RSA :(
    So I would like for fellow local reefers to share what they have (if for free super or if you ask for a little compensation that would also be acceptable.

    Thanks and looking forward to your responses.

    Guys from the coast especially welcome!

    Might be worth trying Wild on Pets in Edenvale. I got some caulerpa and red lettuce algae from them. Think it was R80 for a mix of the 2.

    i am surprised that so few people respond. is it because they dont know the person or they just dont want to share? i dont know. unfortunately i dont have any apart from very small money algae and one rock of seagrass. as soon as it grows you can collect.

    Unfortunately I dont think much macro algae is available in SA. Best bet will be getting hitchhiker macro on sps pieces the lfs gets in

    I am sure collectively there are lots. But the lfs is a good plan. Then we can start sharing when it grows.
