Overview

Creating a thriving "planted marine aquarium" is finally possible thanks to new macro algae from LiveAquaria. These stunningly vibrant and easy-to-care-for algae let you aquascape a nano system that's as beneficial as it is beautiful!

Looking for a brilliant new addition to your macro algae nano showcase setup? Add branching crimson drama to your nano reef or marine refugium with Red Bush Algae. Ornamental Gracilaria Algae is a flat leafed, densely 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, Red Bush Algae arrives ready to anchor in the rockwork of your refugium. Provide moderate flow and lighting with the supplementation of iron, magnesium and trace elements. High levels of phosphates or nitrates will inhibit the growth of these algae.

Ornamental Red Gracilaria Algae is also an important and favorite food source of herbivores like tangs and angels. Once established, clip pieces from your refugium or nano aquarium and feed as a nutritious snack.

Andrew Y Columbus , OH
I bought this and it looks exactly like the picture. It was packaged well and didn't lose any color. The only problem was my turbo snail made mincemeat out of it in 2 days. I will order another and put it in my other tank away from my turbos.
