    Default ANyone know a good place to get sea grasses

    I am incorporating a seagrass tank into this next version of the 270 v3.1 . I want to use turtle grass I think as the primary one. I can dose Iron and I know that makes Macro algeas grow like nuts. Things seem to do better (no matter what type of filtration I have used) when I have some kind of macro filter taking up the slack. I am thinking of the 30 breeder for the seagrass tank.

    I have read Tyree's book on cryptic zones. I figure they exist within rock already though.

    I am thinking around 4" od oolitic sand in there (sugar fine) with some strombus snails. I might do a small LED array for it too. Use 60 degree optics for it and maybe 9-12 white LED's.

    I don't think it's the type you're looking for though... I'll keep searching.
