This species has irregular stiff uprights, which are quite fine and it can attach itself to rocks, shells, etc.
A great algae choice for the tank display and Seahorse aquariums as it will provide natural holdfasts.

This colour of the Acanthophora Spicifera algae will vary depending on the light its get. It will become darker when it gets less light, and brighter when it gets more light ( sometimes it might change to a bright grey in this case).
Acanthophora Spicifera gets sometimes but not often eaten by herbivorous fishes, therefore we recommended to keep it in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.
The commonly called Fire Fern algae will attach itself, but it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it, or just place it in between your rockwork and it will attach itself after a few weeks.
Like for most marine macroalgae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition
This is a very rare available macro algae species, and we are happy to offer it to you.
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.

Nice looking macroalgae that's an incredibly fast grower.
Lovely healthy algae. Perfect for the display tank. Would definitely recommend.
Delicate and beautiful species, arrived fast and in good condition, not much else to say than thank you :).
yes it's good item for everyone
This algae is great for cryptic areas (where debris gather) & is doing fine without optimal lighting. I added lots and lots of nutrients to the water-column as it is simply a nano tank for Copepods to multiple without compunction and I do not risk upsetting anything with the nutrients needed by Macroalgae to live.
The algae is growing nicely already after a couple of weeks and it is, indeed really good at avoiding and/or covering debris.
