    This is another attractive macro algae. It's pink to dark red with a whispy form that seems to flicker in the current.

    I don't have a great picture handy, but it's behind the coral in this photo:

    I've found that this algae will be a deep red in low light and tends to turn pink in bright light. Grows fast with high nutrient levels, though as with all algae, growth may be limited by lack of phosphates.

    This one doesn't tend to attach to rocks, so wedging it in a crevice or tying it down with string is recommended.

    Later? Why wait!

    And yeah, I couldn't agree more. Macros are so easy and look great. They're a huge bang for the buck, IMO.

    Sorry to be off topic but what is that to the right of the Dragon's Tongue algae Phong, the white green stuff? I noticed one of those in my tank and was wondering what this could be.

    Gresham, I think Levi is next on the list. If he can get it from Pixel, I'm sure I will have a frag ready by BAYMAC..

    Levi, are you still interested in this? I have a "frag" available at the BAYMAC. You are coming to the BAYMAC right??
