Halymenia sp. Dragon’s Tongue Marine Macro Algae

The red Dragon’s Tongue macro algae is a more delicate alga, which grows in long blades with red to bright orange edges.
Light

Halymenia sp. Dragon’s Tongue prefers a place with medium to strong light. 

Palatable
Larger herbivore fishes like tangs will eat the Halumenia Algae species, but smaller fishes don't show much interest in it.  
If you have larger herbivore fishes we recommended to keep this alga in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.

Attaching
As the Dragon’s Tongue macro algae won't attach itself it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it.

Trimming
When trimming is necessary we recommend to cut it instead of breaking it off, as it won't damage the algae too much.

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

Flow
This macro algae species prefers low to medium strong flow.

Other
The tips of it will appear sometimes orange, which is a sign of growth and that it gets a lot of light. Which isn't bad for this marine 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.
