No side hustle. I have been throwing extra trimmings into this grow-out tank though.

I'd would love to buy some from you and give a macro tank a shot.  LMK.

I haven't started shipping yet (just been doing local trades/sales). If that changes, I'll let you know.

Posted this in my other thread, but also wrote an article about macroalgae tanks (and featured on the cover) for the latest issue of Reef Hobbyist Magazine!

Digital copy is here.
 
Also, moved some gorgonians out of this tank and swapped with some sargassum. Also trimmed back and removed quite a bit of the red macroalgae b/c it was just getting crazy. But now the blue hypnea growth is just exploding. It's interesting how things can change quite a bit in a macroalgae tank with each trim and growth spurt.

How do you keep the macro clean from collect detritus?

Good ol' fashioned blast and siphon out during my weekly water changes.

Like, you take your siphon hose and just kinda....wiggle it around the macro?  I hate that I'm socially inept and don't have a local reefer to show me how some of these things work sometimes.

Well I use a turkey baster to blast off detritus off the macro first, so it's floating around and then I siphon out around the macro (instead of ever touching the macro with my siphon hose). Hope that makes sense.

Makes perfect sense!  I'm battling flatworms and that's the same technique I tried to get the suckers off my rockwork - blast and siphon!  🙂
