Rose Petal Macro algae?

Does anyone have any experience with Rose petal macro algae? A local reefer is selling some and it looks amazing. But I am wondering why more people don't talk about it? I've never heard about it or seen it until today?

Some are more difficult to acquire than others, which means they're less popular. Take pink Galaxy Macroalgae, there's only one website I've found that had it listed for sale. Unfortunately, he's always out of it.

I've seen rose petal macro, but the price reflected the rarity.

I had some of this stuff. It is very fragile. It didn't adjust to the flow in my tank and pulled off the rock work. Died and was consumed. It will easily be devoured in a display tank by fish like tangs.

I'm really considering buying some. Local reefer has a decent size piece for $25

I'd only bite if it was for a straight trade. I was pretty disappointed when it was flying around my tank like a plastic bad in the wind.
