Reef Tank Suitable, Fish-Only Tank Suitable
Natural Environment: Inhabits intertidal rocks, tidepools, and reef flats where nutrients are high, wave forces low and herbivores are somewhat reduced. Has a somewhat thin, flat and slightly ruffled leaf, often about 4 inches (10 cm) in length.
Aquarium Suitability: Rarely seen in the trade, yet when available will make a good food for herbivorous animals, yet not a long-term desired alga for aquariums. In nutrient-rich aquariums with bright light and few animals to eat it, it will grow nicely and may make for a nice display.
