This Caulerpa species is a smaller but faster growing macro algae than Caulerpa Prolifera, with blades between 2-10cm long. The fronds are attached to a thick rhizome which will attach itself to rock, gravel etc. It is a great algae for nutrients export especially for the sump. Handle with care in the Tank Display, as it is very invasive.
Warning: Last items in stock!
Very rarely eaten, although our tank nips time to time on it.
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.
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 the 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 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.
Our macro algae are from fish free macro algae tanks, although we use sometimes pictures for demonstration purposes only which will include fishes, seahorses and or corals.
We 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, not limited to Copepods, Rotifers etc. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can still stay hidden, especially in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts.
