Grotech MacroAlgeaBreeder

The MacroAlgenBreeder from Grotech is an external algae collection for the seawater aquarium with powerful lighting in the right spectrum to allow algae / algae to grow quickly.

MacroAlgae-Breeder (MAB) is an algae refugium in which the macroalgae grown therein reduce excess nutrients that are dissolved in the aquarium water, such as nitrate and phosphate.

Harvesting the algae growing in the MacroAlgae-Breeder removes unwanted nutrients from the aquarium water.

The harvested algae can be:

  • Disposed of for permanent nutrient removal.
  • Or served algae-eating fish as natural food to return the same amount of nutrients previously removed from the aquarium.

Most suitable for use in MacroAlgae-Breeder are eg Algae species from the red algae family, eg Gracilaria curtissiae or algae, eg Chaetomorpha linum.

Incidentally, the MAB also reproduces small crustaceans, such as copepods, which, when flushed out through the outlet of the MAB, also serve as natural food in the aquarium and are eaten by the fish.

The MAB is equipped with a special algae growth stimulating LED tube as a light source and can be used both in and next to the filter tank. The water is supplied via a hose connection to the central pump of the aquarium or a separate pump (not supplied), which must flow slowly through the MAB.
