Halimeda Incrassata is a very nice and medium fast growing green macro algae which is non-invasive and calcified, which means it needs good calcium levels in the tank to thrive.
It has stiff, segmented flat shaped fronds which can grow up to 30 cm. and does very well in the marine aquarium substrate where it will be kept in place by rhizoids.

As the Halimeda Incrassata algae is a very calcified macro alga it is not often eaten by fishes and critters and needs good calcium levels in the water.
Although it can grow on rock ( by supergluing it for the start ) it will spread wider when it is placed in a sand bed or gravel, which should be preferable min. between 5-10cm deep.
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing. Out of water and in transit it might turn white, but back in the water, it will turn after a few hours back green again.
This macro algae prefers 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 macro algae a sufficient Calcium level should be maintained.
