Clean Sea Lettuce
A fast-growing nutrient sponge!
Sea Lettuce is commonly found on shallow, rocky reefs worldwide. This delicate green algae prefers brightly lit waters with high nutrient levels. Thus, it can quickly reduce concentrations of dissolved nutrients such as nitrate and phosphate in marine aquarium systems. It is regarded as one of the more nutritious macroalgae and is readily accepted by many herbivorous fishes and invertebrates.
Clean Sea Lettuce, or similar Macro Algae, such as our Clean Chaeto or Pom Pom Macro, is an essential part of any refugium set up! If you’re looking for everything you need to get a new refugium up and running, check out our Ultimate Refugium Starter Pack!

PLEASE NOTE: We go to great lengths to treat, quarantine and remove any unwanted parasites, hitchhikers, and other organisms from our Macro Algae. However, we do not guarantee that this item is completely and totally free of anything unwanted. This is because sometimes spores, eggs, etc can remain viable but not visible, despite our strict quarantine procedure. As a result, we always recommend that you properly quarantine anything new that you are adding to your tank.
