SW macro algae scape.

Here's a picture of a 10 gallon marine scape that has been up and running for 14 months now. I tried my best to use what I have learned in the FW hobby to create a nice aquascape.

The tank has 8wpg and an Aquaclear mini, a small powerhead /with sponge attachment and no other equipment.

Reefcentral.com has a bit on macro algae, but there is better sites. They have a subforum for specifically these.


WOW there needs to be more of these SW 'planted' tanks.
Same goes for freshwater 'macro'-algae.

I have been thinking of setting one up eventually.

A few more months of growth and you will achieve an amphitheater shape. I would much like to see the progress of this one, have any pictures of it's humble beginning?

My tank sucks now
