Botryocladia - Red Grape Marine Macro Algae

Light
Botryocladia - Red Grape prefers a place with just medium strong light. When the bubbles turn paler it is often a sign of too much light.

Palatable
The grapes of this macroalgae seem to be very tasty for a lot of marine algae eating fish species, therefore it is recommended to keep it in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.

Attaching
As it won't attach itself it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it.

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

Treatment
Like for most marine macroalgae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition to the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements will improve the growth of this algae.

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.

Looks healthy but was hoping for a larger piece

Shop owner reply (May 9, 2018):
Hi.

Thank you for your feedback. We know this is a lovely algae, and can't be big enough.

You always will get the minimum size as described on the product page of each macro algae.

Kind regards

Arrived fast. Absolutely stunning in excellent condition. Unfortunately my fish devoured it in seconds. My fault will read the descriptions better in future, need to but unpalatable species.

Shop owner reply (Mar 26, 2018):
Hi Robert. I am sorry to hear this. Herbivore fishes love this alga, but normally they just eat the bubbles and leave the structure of the Botryocladia - Red Grape macro algae alive.

When you place this part in an safe are of your tank display, or in the sump with good light, it will grow back. Often this alga is used to feet herbivore fishes like Tang species, or Fox fishes, to keep them healthy, as especially this algae seems to be very delicious for most algae eating fish species.

As you bought a few macro algae remind me with your next order, and I will include a free replacement for you :)

Kind regards
