Spreading Corraline

One of the pieces of LR in my tank has some very pretty orange plating corraline algea on it. Is there any way to encourage this specific algea to spread and grow on my other pieces?

I took the road less traveled. Now where the heck am I?!

No way that I know of to target the growth of a specific type of coraline. Just keep your alkalinity and calcium levels where they should be. I know there are differing opinions concerning the Mark Weiss products, but I recently tried some Reef Vital DNA and the coraline just exploded in that tank...I have to scrape it off the front glass every couple of days.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

you can scrape that particular algae to spread the spores and well as have a powerhead blowing on it.
