that's caulerpa. probably mexicana. just keep that pruned back and don't let it get out of hand. there is a possibility of it "going sexual" and releasing toxins.

i got it from the LFS they told me to just trim it when it gets too big and ill be fine i did some research that if you maintain it properly its fine for a tank and my tank is big so its easy to maintain and looks nice when it gets longer looks like the California kelp forests

Ok, thx
Was just wondering if there was a particular recommended brand that was safe for a SW reef tank

They do carry specific "tank" silicone at LFS but it's pricey and the tubes are small

Figured It would be expansive when buying from the LFS. as long as the $3 Home depot stuff is safe, I'm fine with cheap

home depot stuff did the job pretty well would recommended it just make sure you read the bottle cause some are not aquarium safe
