Gracilaria Curtissae Marine Macro Algae

This colour of the Gracilaria Curtissae algae will vary depending on the light its get. It will become darker when it gets less light, and brighter when it gets more light.


Herbivore marine fishes love to nip on this macroalgae. Therefore it will be better to keep this marine alga in a safe place, for example in the refugium, until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.

As Gracilaria Curtissae won't easily attach itself it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it, or just place it in between your rockwork and it will attach itself after a few weeks.

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 macro 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.

Next time im up there for rthe football ill pop in and take a look. many thanks Ian Answer:
    Hi. That is quite very uncommon. The Gracilaria species we have is not invasive at all, and we keep it since years without any problems. Could you please send us two pictures of the algae in your tank, with one macro shot of, if possible? Let's see how we can help you with this. Kind regards

I just received this algae and really like it. It ads a nice colour to my tank. Received it attached to a plug very well protected. Recommended.
