Hi, I am looking for some awesome macroalgae for a nano/micro/tiny tank, sump i am building. Its my first time setting up a macroalgae display tank so its going to be really small, something to go on my desk.
Any one have some nice red, Purple, green macroalgae (dont know all of the names yet) :). i have searched but cannot find any. Im in the Midrand area and will drive to collect. Hoping to setup something like the attached but on a much much smaller scale.

Some of the coral in this picture is NPS, (can be wrong just looked quickly) not all are algea. NPS don't really use light and they mostly survive on food, which they need about 3 times a day and that's why you need good filtration for them. But as I said I could be wrong
