Halymenia sp. Dragon’s Tongue Marine Macro Algae

The red Dragon’s Tongue macro algae is a more delicate alga, which grows in long blades with red to bright orange edges.

Halymenia sp. Dragon’s Tongue prefers a place with medium to strong 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 Dragon’s Tongue macroalgae won't attach itself it can be easily glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it.

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 low to medium strong flow.

The tips of it will appear sometimes orange, which is a sign of growth and that it gets a lot of light. Which isn't bad for this marine algae.

Please note
Our macro algae are from fish free macro algae tanks, although we use 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.
