The Gracilaria Curtissae macroalgae is beautiful red marine algae species. It features deep red branches which will form a symmetrical bush. Gracilaria species are slow growing and need a long time to attach themself.
A great macroalgae for the Display Tank, where it will surely become fast a highlight and it might compete when it comes to the beauty of it with a lot of marine corals.
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.
Gracilaria Curtissae 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 Gracilaria Curtissae macroalgae will vary depending on the light provided. It will become darker when it gets less light, and brighter when it gets more light.
Herbivore marine fishes love to nip on this macroalgae species. Therefore it will be better to keep this marine alga in a safe place, for example in the refugium, until you like to offer it as additional food to your fishes.
As the Gracilaria Curtissae macroalgae won't attach itself easily by itself this algae might better glued (we use thick cyanoacrylate super glue) to a piece of rock where you like to have it, or just place it in between your rockwork and it will attach itself eventually after a few weeks.
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 live algae.
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 macroalgae can be either placed in the Refugium or in the Reef Display Tank.
Our macroalgae 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.
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.
