PLANTS IN A MARINE AQUARIUM
There are substantially fewer marine plants suited to an aquarium than freshwater
ones. The most common are from the Caulerpa genus, which grow quickly under the
right conditions. These algae attach themselves to the floor and decor with a runner.
They are highly recommended in a marine tank, as they are bound to enhance the overall
balance. Their exuberant growth, however, can sometimes interfere with fixed marine
invertebrates, such as anemones and corals. This anarchic behavior must therefore
be restrained by regularly eliminating a certain amount of this vegetation.
