    I’m using a light in my refugium specifically for growing algae and this sea lettuce grew 10x it’s weight in 2 weeks. I can not believe how fast this grows and how well it’s doing at removing nutrients from my tank. Not sure if it’s a co-incidence, but I battled a diatom outbreak for months and nothing stopped it expect for adding this to my refugium. The diatoms disappeared from my display tank in 2 weeks! Also, my refugium would fill up with hair algae in about a week, but once I added this to it it’s the only thing growing in their now. It really turned my tank around. Other changes I noticed to the tank after adding this is no hair algae in the display tank, PH raises nicely when I turn on the refugium light, less glass cleaning, and I have been able to remove my filter socks. Only downside (if you’re struggling to find one!) is that my fish won’t eat it.

    I’m converting my tank to Triton so I needed to add a decent sized refugium. I have a mix of algae and added ulva to see if it could serve double duty by feeding to my fish. I typically feed dry seaweed on a clip and I changed to feeding ulva. They seem to like it. The yellow tang especially, but my powder blue tang, flametail blenny, and diamond goby like it too. However not as much as the dry seaweed. I must say, this algae is incredibly fast growing. I ordered a golf ball size and it’s massive now… I only put in my tank less than a week ago. I’m going to need to keep this ulva under control and be sure I harvest it often.

    This arrived as described, well packaged, and is doing well in my tank! It looks great and appears to be growing already.
