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
We go 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. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can be still stay hidden in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts. 
We highly recommend therefore that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank. 

The images on this page are for example only, actual product appearance may vary.

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

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 (May 10, 2018):

I 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.

We have already refunded you the money and working on this problem, that it doesn't happen again.

Sorry again for any inconvenience caused and we hope you will give us another chance in the future.

Kind regards
