Purple Fauchea macro algae prefer a place with medium-strong to strong light. With less light, its colour will turn dark red and with a lot of light more violet.
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.
As it won't attach itself it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have
Whitish parts of this marine algae should be removed as they are decomposing.
Like for most marine macro algae species 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.
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.
