Large herbivore fishes might try to eat these algae, although our tan didn't try it yet, as it grows quite thick. Smaller will have problems to eat it, because of this. In a marine aquarium with large herbivore fishes, it is recommended to keep it in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.

Whitish parts of this marine algae should be removed as they are decomposing.
Like for most marine
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.
