Suction Cup Caulerpa

Species Availability:   No stock

    Suction Cup Caulerpa is a prolific green macroalgae that looks great but can sometimes spread to quickly and overrun your tank without proper trimming. Because of this it is a better candidate for a macro algae tank, rather than a reef. It will grow well under bright lighting that are suitable for soft corals or stronger, or specialized lights for growing macroalgae.

    The macro grows from a "runner", a common name for the rhizomes that grow along the substrate. The plants grow up from the runner. You can create multiple plants by removing the runner intact from your tank, clipping it in an area that is between two plants and reattaching the new runner to liverock or a different substrate. The most common way to plant this macroalgae is to bury it slightly under the sand, or place it against a rock in a low flow area so it can attach and grow over the rock.

    This algae will be stressed if sent with Priority Mail, but it can bounce back. Portions are small of this algae, about 4 inches long.

This species cannot be sent to California.
