Sorry for this but I just cannot let this slide by.

Mr. Huntley says no "real plants will grow in pure sea water".

What are caulerpa, they are definitly a marine plant, although not
vascularized. However there are turtle grasses and marine grasses that live
in the water on the Puget Sound that resemble freshwater valisneria. The
last two are vascular plants.

Yes there are plants which grow in "pure sea water".

Sorry for the flame and off the subject of live foods.
