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 this algae.
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.
