I just started a 20g nano reef with a 20g sump that I'm going try as many types of macroalgae as I can. The main tank will be fish only with live rock, but I hope to get good growth out of a good variety of macroalgae. Mostly for nutrient export, but also for secondary display. I'm worried mostly about caluerpa or halimeda going sexual and releasing all those nutrients into that tiny system. There are supposed to be many variations that generally will not sexually reproduce in a nano reef, so I'm going to have to do some research.
I'm definitely going to give Ken Cook a call and pick up some healthy Mangroves. The key thing is to get healthy specimens. No matter how much light you have, if the plants you get are in poor health, there is usually little you can do to save them.
