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.
It is a very stiff growing macro algae which develop slowly beautiful branches.
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.
Needs growing back. Stay updated with our Newsletter!
Warning: Last items in stock!
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.
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.
