Caulerpa Prolifera Marine Macro Algae

Light
Caulerpa Prolifera needs just a medium strong lighting to grow well.

Palatable
Very rarely eaten, although some marine algae eating fishes might nip on it time to time.

Attaching
As this Caulerpa species will attach itself to rock etc. we recommend not to place it too close to your main rock, unlike you like to have it there. It needs some trimming and care. Great to keep in the sump as well for nitrate and phosphate export.

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. This algae eating is much harder than Caulerpa species and therefore there is a low risk anyway that it will go sexual.

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

Treatment
Like for most marine macro algae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition with the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements will improve the growth of this algae.

As it doesn't need very strong light it will do normally very well in the Aquarium Display too, but bear in mind that it will attach itself to rock etc.

It provides great holdfasts for Seahorses.

Please note
We go 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. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can be still stay hidden in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts. 
We highly recommend therefore that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank.

We aim to offer you the healthiest and best quality macro algae on the market. 
All of our macro algae we sell comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Thank you for the advice to keep it away from the main rock in my tank.

It adds a great natural look.
