I am looking for a small piece of live rock with live coraline algae to start my coralline culture. I do not need a big one I just need a piece under a pound.
I am willing to pay for it. I already checked JLAquatics but was told by one of the staff that their live rocks are mostly painted purple not a true coralline algae.
I live in North Burnaby Area. So, I am looking for somewhere closer to my area.

Purple Pink Cuisine Violet Plant


Thanks,
Eric

I don’t know how old your tank is or not but if you have any live rock in there already eventually the coraline will just show up on its own and eventually you will be annoyed once ur scraping it off the glass lol

My saltwater tank is about 3 months old. I only have live sand and dry rocks to start. I need the coralline algae spores to start culturing. I have purple up coralline algae accelerator but needs live coralline algae or spores to seeded.

I can't spare any live rock (don't have much) but I can scrape some off for you and catch the spores with a syringe and give it to you in a test tube. No $$$ needed
