Halimeda right in sand?

Is this a stupid question - I just got Halimeda plants. Do I put these directly in the sand, or glue the bottom to rocks?

Either should work just fine. Depends on the look you want.

I agree. Also heard that Halimeda is one of the few macroalgaes that can irritate coral, so keep that in mind during your placement.

I have it growing in the sand and it is taking off. I also have it on rock in my fuge...i would be a bit scared of putting it in my main display though. It's almost as fast growning as caulerpa, or at least it is in my system.

Mine isn't doing anything. It's turning dark brown and dying off actually. Not really sure why. I may not have enough flow deep in the tank.
