MAybe a stupid question, IDK!


Recommended Posts

So i have my bc14 tank and i love it and i was originally just going to make a reef, however i really like the look of planted takes as well, and i love there ability to eat nitrates.


My question is, Is it a good idea to have macro algaes in the display tank with coral? I dont know if the macro would harm the coral or the coral would harm the macro!!


HAs anyone successfully done this?


is the done commonly??




thank you!

im not an expert on this but i think neither of them are gonna harm each other. i have a red macro of some sort and it's growing healthily along with the corals

mixing macros is fine.. some macro like caulerpa can over grow a tank quickly and go sexual (release its green interior goo all over the place)


as long as you stay away from the caulerpa varieties you should be fine :)
