I don't know about turtle grass, but it is very possible with the caulerpa. I won't go into all the warnings on caulerpa just in case you have heard them all. If not, just let me know

I keep grape calerpa in my fuge but I keep it pruned by putting a softball size pirce in my main for the tangs and I keep my fuge lights on 24/7. Hopefully that`s enough to keep it from going Sexual. Wait a minute , I hear some ticking. LOL
