Penicillus Dumetosus Marine Macro Algae

This macro algae prefers good light. Its deep blue colour is best to reach with a 6500k-10000k light, but with direct sunlight or out of the water it turns brown. 

Penicillus Dumetosus is not very palatable.

It is best kept in the substrate, where it will develop rhizoids to hold itself in place.

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

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.

Please note
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. 

All macro algae will be thoroughly dipped in a professional solution to deactivate hitchhikers as good as possible before posting. If you don't want this, please send us a message together with your order.

We highly recommend nonetheless that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank.

We aim to offer you the healthiest and best quality macro algae on the market, therefore, all of our macro algae comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

I have placed two orders, both cancelled

I have placed an order now where the algae are not in stock. But rather than tell me that at checkout so I can go elsewhere I have been charged.

Shop owner reply (Oct 18, 2018):
Hi.\r\n\r\nI am very sorry for this. Unfortunately, we had a problem with our stock management software, and it allowed you to order a macro algae, which we can\'t sell at the moment.\r\n\r\nWe have already refunded you the money and working on this problem, that it doesn\'t happen again.\r\n\r\nSorry again for any inconvenience caused and we hope you will give us another chance in the future.\r\n\r\nKind regards\r\n\r\nManfred\r\nLivealgae UK
