The Gracilaria Curtissae macro algae is beautiful red marine algae species. It features deep red branches which will form a symmetrical bush. Gracilaria species are slow growing and need a long time to attach themself.
A great alga for the Marine Tank Display, where it will become surely fast a highlight and it might compete when it comes to the beauty of it with a lot of marine corals.

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.
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.

Hi. That is quite very uncommon. The Gracilaria species we have is not invasive at all, and we keep it for 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
