Chlorodesmis Sp. Marine Macro Algae

This macroalga contains a toxic substance to deter fishes from eating it, this might affect as well the growth of close corals.

It will attach itself after a while to rock.

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

These macroalgae prefer not too high levels of Nitrate and Phosphate and will grow better with the additional supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements. As it is a calcified macroalga a sufficient Calcium level should be maintained.

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. 

The images on this page are for example only, actual product appearance may vary.

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.

    Hi i want an Seahorse aquarium with various macroalgae but I'm told Hippocampus erectus do better at 22c temperature so can algae survive this temp also 1.022 salinity?. Answer:
    Hello. It depends on what macro algae you are looking for. Most algae species prefer a min. temperature from 23-24 C. But we kept some algae species for a while with a lower temperature ( around 21 C ) for a test and noticed that they survived, but the growth rate was much slower. We never tested our marine algae with such a low salinity so. We recommend for most species to keep a stable salinity between 1.024 to 1.026.Maybe our algae starter pack would be a good solution for you? This way you could test by yourself how they do without investing a lot of money.https://www.livealgae.co.uk/macroalgae/marine-macro-algae-starter-set/Let us know if we can help you further with this.Kind regards Livealgae UK

I have never seen this algae before. It looks really great. I glued it as recommended to a some rock and have it in my sand-bed now. It looks almost like a little lawn :)
