I need to get me some of that. I did not have success with it years ago but I think that is because I had it in a high flow display tank and did not know a way to anchor it. The refugium is a much lower flow and it could probably just lay on the sandbed or be wedged near some rock. I do like it's nice light green color in a tank.

I went down to check on Plank and Molly McGwire, the converted to saltwater molly and I saw a wonderful thing happening in the fuge. Watch this 30 second video:

Tiny helpers! Very cool.

Ulva seems to be a high nutrient kinda plant. When it has enough light and nutrients, it grows faster than anything I've seen.

I was thrilled when I saw them cleaning the blades of seagrass!
