This macroalgae species features a long stringy structure with tube-like branches. It grows decently fast and can reach a length of up to 30-40 cm. The colouration of this macro algae varies between red to reddish brown, which can turn sometimes more light coloured translucent when it gets a lot of light.
Gracilaria Tikvahiae - Mocha Ogo prefers a place with moderate to medium strong light and can be placed in deeper / shadier places in the marine display tank or refugium.
This macroalgae is widely by a lot of herbivore fish species, like Tang & Foxfish. 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. More brighter new growth is a sign of too much light often.
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.
Gracilaria Tikvahiae - Mocha Ogo grows well in low to medium strong waterflow
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.
