Macro Algae: Your Source For Quality Marine Plants and Macroalgae | Gulf Coast Ecosystems

Home Contact Update About Us Ordering FAQ'S Our Staff Free Online Guide "Marine Plants in the Aquarium"

Welcome to Gulf Coast Ecosystems, Your Source For Quality Marine Plants. We specialize in collecting and culturing over 30 species of macro algae native to both the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. We offer only the highest quality specimens that have been hand collected from the ocean and acclimated to aquarium conditions. In addition we also collect and offer a selection of gorgonians, ricordea and invertebrates native to Florida. Our selection is very seasonal so most of the species of algae we offer will not be available at the same time.

Orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail and FedEx ground in 1-3 business days depending on your location.  We offer flat rate pricing based on the quantity of items added to the shopping cart . We ship every week, Mon-Wed. Orders received after 10am EST on Tues will ship the following week. To order, click on each image or species name to open the description page. Please ensure that items are listed as "in stock" before ordering. 

Shipping update 7/4

USPS continues to have ongoing issues with deliveries across the U.S. due to a limited amount of commercial flights available to various destinations. Most locations are arriving a day late at this time. FedEx shipments have been on time with very few delays. 

Shipping USPS Priority Mail to 3-day locations is currently suspended. For 3-day locations that require priority mail service we now offer UPS 2-day flat rate pricing, there is an option at checkout for upgraded 2 day shipping. In addition we won't be shipping gorgonians and or corals to 3-day locations until the delivery delays are resolved. You will be contacted if your location does not qualify for the standard shipping options available for your location.

We have suspended shipping any orders to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico at this time.  We want to thank everyone for their patience while we continue to offer our products to as many customers as possible during the ongoing covid-19 pandemic.
