Caulerpa algea growing

I got some of this from a friend but my tangs ate about half the leaves will it grow back from just stems?

That seems to be a good natural food for tangs. It might come back but the tangs will probably come back but the tangs will eat it again. I give my friend caulerpa for a fox face once it ate a gallon bag of it in about 24 hours.

It's meant to be grown in a sump. It is a tasty treat for tangs and others.
When I pruned it I would put a handful in the DT for the tangs and Foxface.

They will eat it faster than it can grow in a DT.

I'm actually growing it in my in sump refugium but I just had to move my hippo down there cause he has a swim bladder infection and my sailfin was picking on him
