overviewThe Red Smooth Leaf Kelp are red algae (Rhodophyta), and are very beautiful in appearance. Their branches and leaves are fern-like in appearance, and can reach a height of up to 10 inches. Their color can vary from a dark pink to deep red, and will add a beautiful diversity of color and form to your reef aquarium.
The ideal set up for the Red Smooth Leaf Kelp is an established saltwater reef aquarium with plenty of live rock and low nutrient levels. This kelp should be supplied with moderate to strong lighting of at least 4 watts per gallon of flourescent lighting or preferably metal halides. Fish will typically not nip at this plant unless there is insufficient algae present in the aquarium.
