 I  don't  really  have  any  idea  about  this.
 
 Can  we  have  living  plants  in  a  marine  setup..
 
 What  types  of  plants  are  available  and  what  additional  setup  equipment  is  required  to  keep  them  alive  and  well.
 
 Thanks

 Well  its  not  very  difficult.  Its  same  like  maintaining  a  FW  planted  tank.  There  are  plants  that  are  termed  easy  and  there  are  plants  that  are  termed  Tough.  Same  applies  to  growing  macro  algae.  Some  like  Chaeto  and  caulerpa  grow  very  easily  and  are  often  used  in  sumps  to  maintain  the  water  quality.  Smile  
 
 This  link  should  be  very  helpful  for  you  Macro  Algae   Thumb Up

 Regarding  Macro  algae...
 
 
 There  is  a  large  variety  of  macro  algae  available,  i've  got  about  30  species....
 
 Anyways,  for  them  to  thrive,  you  will  need  a  good  amount  of  light  within  the  6500-10000k  range..and  some  nutrients  in  your  water  (  Nitrates  and  Phosphates  ),  no  need  for  other  supplements.
 
 You  could  always  add  a  bit  of  iodine  or  iron,  although  not  needed..
