Red Bush Gracilaria Algae is a beautiful species of red gracilaria features rigid, irregular shaped branches that form a tight symmetrical bush. It is lightly calcified, so the addition of calcium is recommended. Due to its lightly calcified branches its not known to be very palatable to fish or invertebrates. You will receive approximately one pint.
Gracilaria algae may also be grown in the invertebrate or reef aquarium as long as the algae is not disturbed by fish or invertebrates. Anchor the algae between the rockwork of the aquarium, and the algae will take root and start to grow if it is given proper lighting and water conditions. You will receive approximately one pint.
Provide moderate flow and lighting with the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements. High levels of phosphates or nitrates will inhibit the growth of these algae.
