Solieria spp. or often just called Red Bamboo is an interesting different looking marine macro alga. It has bright to dark red long canes which wich will split at the end and grow on in further canes. This alga can grow more than 20-30cm long and it will be a perfect addition to the tank display and Seahorse Aquarium.

Solieria spp. prefers a place in the aquarium with low to medium lighting.
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 cutting this macroalgae instead of breaking it off, as it won't damage the algae too much.
Like for most marine macroalgae and Seaweed species 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 this algae will appear whitish when it grows. Just when you see the older parts of the branch turning white please remove this part, as it is decomposing.

Excellent website, lovely marine algae and super fast delivery. Would highly recommend.
Very nice algae. Thanks for including a lovely codium! Received the next day.
Arrived very fast and was larger than expected. I just glued this algae to some rock and my Seahorses already love it.
I bought this for my dwarf seahorses....they love to hitch on it .....stunning algae growing well .
I am so happy that my Seahorses like this algae. It's such a great addition for my tank. Although I think it's better to get 2-3 at once of this algae and to stick it on some rock to look better.
