Growing Blackfish weed

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, since finding blackfish weed is hard...

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to grow the green weed that blackfish eat as bait in a tub or aquarium. It doesn't really seem hard replicating the ocean environment. If so, can you pleas share the information, thankyou :)

I've had it in my tank now for 3 months. Still fresh as a daisy. Only wire weed. Not the soft stuff.

I kept it simple just used normal fresh water added salt from the aquarium shop I have a filter and airators which run non stop and a grow light which I turn off at night time.

Don't stir it just let it sit and take a bit from the top when you need it.

Add nothing. I've tried fish food etc. nothing. Top up the water every month due to evaporation.

I'm not sure it's growing but it's keeping very well.

That's what it looks like out of the tank.
