do you no of any benifits or possible problems with this algae?
What is typical for a calcareous algae is that they will not go "sexual" like Caulerpa will, so people tend to keep then in their display tank more often. OTOH, if you let it grow out of control, it will absorb quite a bit of calcium out of your system, so keep it fairly well trimmed, and relatively small....just watch your ca
Being a calsifying algae does it mean that I have the correct level of calcium in my tank.... I have had trouble getting it much above 400 and I am reading 3-3.5 meq/l.
I don't know what these types of algae require
to grow, but 400 for a ca
level is not bad at all.
