Any Macroalgae tanks out there??

Does anybody keep a macroalgae tank? I have no clue about saltwater tanks but this looks very interesting. How much harder/easier is it to keep a tank like this? Post pics if you keep one. Thanks!

I can be easy and hard, depending on the species you plan on growing. You'll have to watch out for hair algae as well. They're annoying to get out of the macro algae ):<

Aren't most macroalgae illegal to own in the coastal states?

It's not hard at all, but keeping them in check is a lot of work, many easy to get ones grow very fast. The ones you show in the pics are the easy ones-you will have to prune very frequently. Most of them can grow in a very congested environment too because in general SW peeps love to have the most powerful flow on earth in out tanks.
