Ok, maybe a Gracilaria sp.

http://www.botany.hawaii.edu/GradStu...studyguide.htm

toward the bottom of that page is two different species. Although yours is darker, that could be photography. Look more at the structure. And if that isn't right, I'll see what else I can find.

The structure looks the same but it really is bright red like that. It says that it is usually "bright yellow to orange-brown"... does that mean its not the same thing?

That color (brown/yellow) is probably typical for that species. Yours maybe be a different one but still a gracilaria sp. Here is a link with one that is bright red like yours. I don't know if this is what you have, just that this is the closest I could find. Hopefully someone else can give you others opinions. It's cool and I hope it does well for you.

Macroalgae on both counts. I wasn't able to keep the bright green one alive in my tank. Don't know why...had lots of light and good Ca levels.
