We recently received this red marine algae new and it is now ready to sell.
The species is called Rhodopeltis sp., a very rare to find marine macro algae.

An amazing looking red alga for the Tank Display where it will provide hiding space for small fishes and critters and an excellent holdfast for Seahorses too.

Rhodopeltis sp. Marine Macro Algae


Rhodopeltis sp prefers a place with medium to high light. 

Larger herbivore fishes like tangs may eat it, but smaller fishes have problems biting it.  If you have larger herbivore fishes we 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.

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

The tips of it will appear whitish when it grows. Just when you see the older branch turning white please remove this part, as it is decomposing.

Please note
We go 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. This is simply because that sometimes eggs, spores, etc can remain viable but not visible and hitchhikers can be still stay hidden in dense algae structures, despite our strict quarantine efforts. 
We highly recommend therefore that you properly quarantine anything new before adding it to your marine tank. 

The images on this page are for example only, actual product appearance may vary.

We aim to offer you the healthiest and best quality macro algae on the market. 
All of our macro algae we sell comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

    Hello, I was wondering how fast this algae grows, I have a 15 litre nano tank and am looking at different algaes for an alternative to sps, I have some sexy shrimp and and emerald/hermet crabs. Will this be ok and grow fairly slowly in medium light and flow?Thanks, Ethan Answer:
    This macro algae grows very slow and is therefore perfect for a nano tank. A very beautiful species, which is hard to find. It will be fine with your shrimp and crabs and as well with medium light conditions, which it actually prefers.Other slow growing algae I would recommend for the Nano Tank are the Codium, the Red Grape macro algae and some more you will find in our section for Macroalgae for the Nano Tank. I hope this helped. Kind regards

    Hi, we have a nano and would like to encourage a colony of copepods. Is this attractive algae ideal for that? If not, what would we best looking at - preferably red and suitable for nano tank (60L).Thanks, Jon and Cass Answer:
    Rhodopeltis is a very beautiful algae, but I would rather recommend other macro algae species to increase the population of copepods etc. For example the blue Ochtodes. As it will provide a better shelter. Have a look at the Red Grape algae too, which is a beautiful algae species, and perfect for a nano tank. Kind regards

I can just highly recommend Manfred. The algae he suggested looks indeed very beautiful, and it looks great in my Seahorse tank. Thank you very much. Will recommend you.
