Green Gracilaria is actually considered a red macro algae, despite its green color. (It has to do with the presence of red algae pigments, despite their lack of expression in this algae.) It is easily cared for, doing well in low light as well as in brighter lighting. This aquacultured macro can be easily trimmed, and the cuttings can be superglued to a rock or shell to start another bush. If placed in a refugium, the cuttings can be used to feed Tangs, Angels and other herbivorous fish who absolutely love to munch on this algae. It grows at a moderate pace.
We will ship you a piece that is approximately 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall. The macro can grow to a size of 10 inches tall with a runner that can continue to spread the macro lengthwise.
