Tidepool Tim says,  “Sea lettuce is a great algae for feeding and adds bright color to any cold-water aquarium. We ship samples attached to small mussels or pebbles so that the plant remains intact on the tank bottom. Sea Urchins, some fish, and other grazers love this seaweed and it also serves as a nitrogen sink for better water quality. This is the typical green algae used in many phycology labs at colleges & universities. Sea lettuce is a common edible seaweed and is often used in soups, salads, and other dishes.”
