Caulerpa Taxifolia belongs to the greenmacro algae species and has long fronds with segmented appendages. It is tolerant to a wide range of water temperature but needs more light than for example Caulerpa Prolifera. A very nice looking algae which gives the marine tank a more natural look.
It is as well a recommended algae for the refugium to reduce the nitrate and phosphate level in the tank.
Warning: Last items in stock!
Caulerpa Taxifolia macro algae prefer good light.
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.
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.
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.

Very good service, polite and quick response via email. I bought a large colony of callerpa taxifolia that arrived in very good condition and has anchored to the rock fast and has a lot of new growth already. I also bought a small piece of blue ochtode but due to the shipping taking longer then expected, it arrived transparent in colour but the awesome freebie I was provided Makes up for the loss. I Will be purchasing more macro from this company and I would advise other to do so
Excellent service and great plants.
Settled in quickly and became firmly established after a couple of days.
Highly recommended. Very happy with the algae I have received.
