Caulerpa Brachypus Marine Macro Algae

Light
This macro algae is fine with medium to strong light.

Palatable
Very rarely eaten, although our tank nips time to time on it.

Attaching
As it will attach itself to rock etc. we recommend not to place these macroalgae to close to your main rock when you decide to have it in your tank display, unless you like to have it there. It needs some trimming and care. The algae species is great to keep it in the sump for the nitrate and phosphate export.

It will grow in clumps when restricted and it is a perfect choice for nutrient export, especially where Chaeto doesn't work.

Caulerpa Case
Some Caulerpa species might go sexual, which means that it releases gametes and tissue into the aquarium water. Although this said, we never had in 14 years any problem with this algae species, and it was one of our first macroalgae we got. One thing to avoid this is good light and to remove pale turning parts of it. 

Trimming
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.

Treatment
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 algae.

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.

Shop owner reply (Sep 5, 2017):
I'm sorry for the delay. We post all our marine macro algae via Royal Mail First Class early in the morning, to make sure that it will be as soon as possible at yours.

Unfortunately in very rare occasions, like in yours, Royal Mail lets us down a bit.

I am happy though that we were able to sort this out for you and that the replacement arrived fast and healthy at yours.

Sorry again for any inconvenience caused.

Kind regards

Manfred

Received it Friday. Thank you very much, it was even more than I expected. Let's hope it will grow well in my sump.
