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

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