Halymenia sp. Dragon’s Tongue prefers a place with low light.
Larger herbivore fishes like tangs will eat the Halymenia algae species, but smaller fishes don't show much interest in it.
If you have larger herbivore fishes we recommend to keep this alga in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.
As the Halymenia maculata macro algae won't attach itself it can be easily glued to rock where you like to have it
( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ).
When trimming is necessary we recommend to cut it instead of breaking it off, as it won't damage the algae too much.
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
This macro algae species prefers medium to strong water flow.
The tips of it will appear sometimes purple, which is a sign of growth and that it gets a lot of light. Which isn't bad for this marine 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.
