The Acanthophora Spicifera marine macroalgae has irregular stiff uprights, which are quite fragile and it will grow like little shrubs, creating an area which will provide a hiding space for small critters and fishes and a natural holdfast for seahorses. It belongs to the red algae species although its colour ranges more between brown/reddish/grey depending on what light is used.
This macro algae will arrive unattached. If you prefer it already attached to a zoa cone please add the amount of cones you need HERE.
Acanthophora Spicifera Marine Macroalgae
Premium Marine Macro algae for the Planted Reef Display Tank & Refugium for sale on Live Algae UK.
Your 1st choice for clean Marine Macroalgae from Fish & Copper free tanks since 2014.
This colour of the Acanthophora Spicifera marine macroalgae will vary depending on what aquarium light spectrum is provided. It will become darker when it gets less light, and brighter when it gets more light ( sometimes it might change to a bright grey in this case).
The Acanthophora Spicifera marine algae is sometimes eaten by herbivorous fishes, therefore we recommend keeping it in a safe place until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.
The commonly called Fire Fern macro algae will easily attach itself, but it can be to start with as well glued ( we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue ) to rock where you like to have it, or just place it in between your rockwork and it will attach itself after a few weeks.
If the macroalgae is not growing as expected a special formulated fertiliser for the marine aquarium can help to improve the growth of the macroalgae. Please find a selection of supplements for the marine aquarium HERE
This is a very rare available live algae species, and we are happy to offer it to you.
Our macroalgae 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.
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.
