Is it alive?

I ordered this dragons breath macro algae on eBay and received it today. Does it look alive? Click image for larger version

Looks ok. Give it some light and it'll color up as it grows and absorbs nutrients.

Thanks! I was worried because the bag smelled kind of weird.

Stale, waste filled salt water does smell bad. Smell the skim from a skimmer sometime. There might be some die off from shipping, but it has color so no matter what it can survive. Just like a coral or that pee spot in the yard.

It was looking great, but this happened today. Not sure how. Any ideas?

Don't know much about the stuff, but might just be going sexual?
