This macroalgae might be in the early growth mistaken for an unwanted type of hair microalgae, but is actually a very beautiful macroalgae addition for the marine aquarium. It will often grow from a single holdfast and form bright green clumps.
Needs growing back. Stay updated with our Newsletter!
Warning: Last items in stock!
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.
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.
