The Caulerpa Brachypus macroalgae is a much smaller growing macroalgae than its big brother the Caulerpa Prolifera marine macroalgae, with blades just 1-5cm long. The fronds are attached to a slim rhizome which will attach itself easily to rock. This is a very specialised macroalgae and more recommended for dedicated planted Reef Tanks or Macroalgae refugiums to create a complete macroalgae look.
* Currently unavailable via Free Royal Mail First Class delivery. Due to Covid-19 there are possible longer transit times and this algae will not do well in transit for longer than 2 days*
Caulerpa Brachypus Marine Macroalgae
Premium Marine Macro algae for the Planted Reef Display Tank & Refugium for sale on Live Algae UK.
Your 1st choice for clean Marine Macroalgae from Fish & Copper free tanks since 2014.
The Caulerpa Brachypus macroalgae grows well under medium to strong light.
This marine algae is more palatable than the normal Caulerpa Prolifera species.
As this macro algae will attach itself to rock etc. we recommend not to place these macroalgae too close to your main rock in the Reef Display Tank, unless you like to have it there. It needs some trimming and care. The algae species is great to keep in the sump for the nitrate and phosphate export.
Some Caulerpa species might go sexual, which means that it releases gametes and tissue into the aquarium water.
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.
Like for most marine macroalgae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition to the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements will improve the growth of this live algae.
If the macroalgae is not growing as expected a special formulated fertiliser for the marine aquarium can help to improve the growth of the macroalgae. Please find a selection of supplements for the marine aquarium HERE
This macroalgae can be either placed in the Refugium where it would need an enclosed space or in an enclosed area in the marine Display Tank.
Our macroalgae are from fish free macro algae tanks, although we use sometimes pictures for demonstration purposes only which will include fishes, seahorses and or corals.
We do our best to quarantine, treat and remove any unwanted hitchhikers, parasites etc from our macro algae but we can not guarantee that the algae are completely free of anything unwanted, not limited to Copepods, Rotifers etc. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can still stay hidden, especially in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts.
We highly recommend nonetheless that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank.

Took to long to arrive.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful
The algae took to long to arrive, which seemed to be a problem of Royal Mail, Some of the algae looked already bad. Luckily it got sorted out.
