Will Tangs eat Caulerpa prolifera?

I'm thinking about getting some, but don't want it to be eaten.

My first reaction is YES.

Tangs will eat just about any macro algae you have in the tank.

Dont take my word as the gospel. Reefrunner or Anenomen should be able to give you a definate answer.

If you have a tang and also wish to have some macro algae then its best to cultivate it in your sump or a refegium and then when the tang has eaten all of it out of your display tank to add more from the sump.
Remember dont tap the glass, your fish will think you're an idiot -Anonymous mother
