Barr Report does not sell plants. Tom has previously hosted marine plant excursions where you could collect them though.

This probably doesnt help too much in this situation, but back when I ordered Halophila from them they threw in some halodule which has turned out to be Halodule Uninervis. I would guess that this is the seagrass they are selling, but without a response cant say for sure.

If it is halodule a good close up of the leaf tip will be necessary for species id.

I'm fairly new on here, but I thought I'd let everyone know to be weary of Bill's Reef. I ordered a 6pack of Widgeon Grass and some Spartinia Grass from the site... What I got was a small clump of green strings bunched in with baby Cheto and maybe 3 small shoots of Spartinia! I will not recomend that site to anyone.

I've ordered from Bill's with no problems. Have you sent him a PM to discuss what you got as opposed to what you expected?

BrackishBoi,

It's early in the season here and things are just starting to sprout. I had told you that the grasses would be small starts. Please be patient and give them a chance, they will grow

Hi everyone.
I am from Portugal.
I am thinking in setting up a Macro Algae Tank, but here in Portugal is really really really difficult to get diferent kinds of macro algae...
I can only get few kinds of caulerpas (like prolifera and taxifolia) and chaeto. Red and brown macroツエs are very rare in our shops...
Can you please give me information about online shops ho ships macro algaes in Europe?
Thank you all

I recently received some macroalgaes (Codium, Red Titan, Ulva, etc) from ReefCleaners.org and was very happy with the order and customer support.
