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.

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

This is a really nice algae, and a very unusual colour. Definitely a bit different to anything else in your tank. I would highly recommend it.
