Botryocladia - Red Grape Marine Macro Algae

Light
Botryocladia - Red Grape prefers a place with just medium strong light. When the bubbles turn paler it is often a sign of too much light.

Palatable
The grapes of this macroalgae seem to be very tasty for a lot of marine algae eating fish species, therefore it is recommended to keep it in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.

Attaching
As it won't attach itself it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it.

Trimming
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.

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.


Please note
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. 

All macro algae will be thoroughly dipped in a professional solution to deactivate hitchhikers as good as possible before posting. If you don't want this, please send us a message together with your order.

We highly recommend nonetheless that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank.

We aim to offer you the healthiest and best quality macro algae on the market, therefore, all of our macro algae comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Hi.

Thank you for your feedback. We know this is a lovely algae, and can't be big enough.

You always will get the minimum size as described on the product page of each macro algae.

Kind regards

Arrived fast. Absolutely stunning in excellent condition. Unfortunately my fish devoured it in seconds. My fault will read the descriptions better in future, need to but unpalatable species.

Shop owner reply (Mar 26, 2018):
Hi Robert. I am sorry to hear this. Herbivore fishes love this alga, but normally they just eat the bubbles and leave the structure of the Botryocladia - Red Grape macro algae alive.

When you place this part in an safe are of your tank display, or in the sump with good light, it will grow back. Often this alga is used to feet herbivore fishes like Tang species, or Fox fishes, to keep them healthy, as especially this algae seems to be very delicious for most algae eating fish species.

As you bought a few macro algae remind me with your next order, and I will include a free replacement for you :)

Kind regards

questions Guest on 07/07/2018
Question: 

Hi, Would guillards f/2 formula be a suitable nutrient feed for them? Or would it need supplementing with something else?

Answer: 

Hi. I could imagine that it could do the job. But I tried to find the formula for it, to see the different ingredients, but couldn't find it.


It works very well in a marine water environment with some Nitrate ( recommended at around 2-10) and Phosphate ( recommended at around 0.3). Most marine aquariums with fishes will have this, as long as no Nitrate or Phosphate remover is used.


Please have a look at https://www.livealgae.co.uk/info/what-nutrients-need-marine-macro-algae-to-grow for further information.


I hope this helps.


Kind regards

questions STEPHEN on 08/05/2018
Question: 

Can I use this algae in my Seahorse tank without the risk of going bad and causing trouble?

Answer: 

This macro  algae is a perfect addition as well for the Seahorse Tank. It doesn't go sexual as some Caulerpa algae species can do and it is a very hardy algae species, which doesn't need a lot of light too.


It will provide great natural holdfast for your Seahorses and look beautiful.


We highly;y recommend these algae for your purpose.


Kind regards
