    Thanks Nick, I look into it. That website you listed sells both of those plants. Wonder if it can handle salinity of 1.008, thats what my tank is set at for now

    I would think that it could. It is found in the Mediterranean Sea, and the salinity the drops a bit. Not to 1.008,but i think it should be fine. 1.011 would be better.

    John Maloney of reefcleaners responded, says 1.02 unfortunately.

    Instead of macro algaes, what about some some native plants for their biotope in Hawaii?

    You can get macros from local reefers for free. I used to use refugiums to help break down nitrogen in my reef tanks, but no longer needed it to sustain my systems. Try reef2reef.

    As far as any native anchialine plants, you can’t get them iirc. The ecosystems are so damaged, you can’t take anything for them. I’d love to go back home and sneak some into my setups, but I don’t have the money to fly home. Lol there was a pool close to my home, but the volcano is still going off.
