The Rhodopeltis macroalgae species is a very rare to find marine macroalgae and will add with its stiff growing red branches a beautiful colour and structure to the reef display tank. It will provide hiding space for small fishes and critters and is an excellent choice for the Seahorse aquarium, as it will add a natural holdfast for them.
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.
Rhodopeltis sp. Marine Macroalgae
The Rhodopeltis sp macroalgae prefers a place with medium strong light.
Larger herbivore fishes like tangs may eat this marine algae, 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 this macroalgae 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 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
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.
Our macro algae 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.
