    • Post in Macro algae lagoon aquarium (share photos of your aquariums with macro algae)
    • First started a dedicated macroalgae tank about 3 years ago to help grow enough pods for the mandarin fishes. And recently started anew with a semi-outdoor macroalgae in new house, no idea how it will work out in the long run but it has been working well so far

      Here are the technical specs:
      -40g long main tank
      -10kg Arag-alive live sand
      -Maxspect Gyre XF130 wave maker
      -Deltec SC1455 skimmer
      -Setup and designed by Henry from MarineLife



      The algae has been growing well with natural light and the tank gets direct late-afternoon sun. The temperature can get as high as 31 degreeC


      The evaporation lost can get really high hence an 'rain-proof' automatic water top-up system was built

      Also DIY-ed an light 'hood' for night viewing using outdoor switch and spotlight, the tank gets about 3-hours of artificial light everyday.

      Currently i've the following in the tank

      Macro-algae:
      -OCHTODES SP
      -CAULERPA SERRULATA
      -CHAETOMORPHA SP (Hitchhiked from somewhere, grown into few big balls now!)
      -VALONIA SP
      -PADINA SP
      -GALAXAURA SP
      -GELIDIUM SP

      Fishes
      -3 Mandarin fishes
      -1 regal tang
      -1 tailspot blenny
      -1 clownfish
