Not all algae are equal in beauty. This product carries the hard to find  globular algae, like Halymenia elongata, Nematoma spp., Pradea spp. , and rare forms of Gracilaria. All are semi-translucent and have cylindrical branching. The pictured plant gives you an idea of the specimen you will recieve, but they don't all look that way. These species are somewhat difficult to care for, do better in moderate lighting. These macros tend to be more difficult to propagate by cuttings, the preferred way to reproduce the algae is to let them spread to new surfaces before seprating the plants. These species are edible, and should be kept away from not only herbivorous fish, but hermit crabs as well. Smaller snails are safe with these species.
