Anyone have lots of different macro for fuge? Looking for different strains and colors for a display fuge tied into main display. Ideally would like to pick up 5+ varieties.

if you go to Jamaica Bay, Cross bay blvd parking lot on the island, there are at least 3 species of macros there, the red gracilas, regular ulva and the thin long ulva, There are other red algae species, a stringy one that fish dont like and also some kelp, but those are not too useful. easily harvested during low tide.
Give them a good fresh water bath before use. or grow them out in a separate container before introducing into your tank.

how good do they do in a reef where temp is normally 75-80?

Reefman, the red gracilaria and green ulva are the same that you buy to feed your tangs. During the summer and fall, I can easily find a bucket of it.
