Flame Algae

Flame Algae is a red bushy macroalgae with small flame shaped branchlets. It is calcified and rigid.

Flame Algae, (Bryothamnion sp.), is a red bushy macro algae with small flame shaped branchlets. It is calcified and rigid. Initially growing in all shapes and directions,we feel it looks best when trimmed into a circular shape, as we have done in the item description picture. It is easily cared for, doing well in low light, (1-2 watts per gallon on a 10 hour photocycle), as well as in brighter lighting. The brighter the light, the darker the macro and vice versa. The macro can be easily trimmed, and the cuttings can be superglued to a rock or shell to start another bush.

It grows at a moderate to slow pace, and is a better candidate for the display aquarium as opposed to a refugium. We will ship you a piece that is approximately 3 inches wide and 3 inches tall. The macro can grow to a size of 8-12 inches tall with a width of 6 inches.
