So the macro algae has grown to the point that that's what I'm watching instead of the shrimp. Decided to take some of it out.

That’s a lot. See if your ML would munch on them.

No macro algae in the ML tank. I feed those live scuds, frozen red worms and flake food every day.

They would eat this? If they will I'll transfer some over. It's growing too fast.

This is my first post here. I am gearing up to set up an Opae Ula tank.
I have freshwater shrimp tanks.
What kind of macro algae is that and where can I get some?
Thanks. I do want something that grows easily.

Only 2 that I know sell it. Myself and google. google gives very little. My algae is bigger. I purchased mine years ago from google as their is the only one I know that sells one that survive in brackish water. You cannot use or acclimate the salt water version chaeto as that will just melt away after a weeks time. I tried that. Here's a link to mine or just message me directly through here.

If the message is sat in your outbox it will be waiting for him to read it, failing that message him on eBay.
