The Caulerpa Racemosa Grape Caulerpa is a very popular and beautiful looking macro algae, which often get seen as the origin of Caulerpa racemosa species. It is fast growing and forms ball shaped appendages, therefore it is commonly called Grape Caulerpa.
It is popular for Human Consumption too, but we sell this algae just for the marine tank.

These macro algae love the light, as more as you provide as faster it will grow.
Our Tang is sometimes interested in the roots but he doesn't like to eat the algae by itself.
As it 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 attention as it is fast growing. Great to keep in the sump as well.
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.
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.
Like for most marine macro algae 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.
