It's not grape if it's not branching. And I don't think it is. This is grape.

Oh it's very dense. I have one brick of it larger than a softball. All the pieces in the LFS I get it from are the same way, sans branches. Some of his bunches have been there many many months too without branching. Also in California many types of caulepra are illegal to bring in & im not sure but i think grape is one you can't get here anymore. I will get the name of it (probably a common name from him) and post.

Grape caulepra is illegal in CA. I am very interested in knowing what exactly this macro algae is. What kind of lighting schedule do you have it under? You stated earlier that it doesn't go sexual like most caulepra, so is it under 12 or 24 hr lighting? This is probably why you can get it in CA though. Either way, let us know. This sounds like the macro algae for me!

Update: they're seriously growing some roots now. Some didn't make it but the ones that did are doing well!

Looking good. Of my 5there are 2 left and only one I think will make it. Salt creep got them. But the roots look just like mine did. Keep it up.

I had some red grape algae but I had turbo snails eat it all, they loved it, they would climb it like a tree.
