Add swaying crimson drama to your nano reef or marine refugium with beneficial red macro algae. Mammillaris Gracilaria Algae is a flat leafed, branching semi-transparent algae that provides proper nutrient export and oxygenation, helping to naturally boost water quality and balance your aquarium's nitrogen cycle.
Mounted on a piece of square cut fossilized coral skeleton, Mammillaris Gracilaria algae arrives ready to anchor in the rockwork of your refugium. Provide moderate flow and lighting with the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements. High levels of phosphates or nitrates will inhibit the growth of these algae.
Gracilaria Algae is also an important and favorite food source of herbivores like tangs and angels. Once established, clip pieces of Gracilaria mammillarus from your refugium and feed as a nutritious snack.
