Macroalgea -- Chaetomorpha (cheato aka brillo), Red Gracilaria, Grape Caulerpa, etc.

I keep Grape calerpa in mine but I hear that it can go sexual. To keep it from clouding up your tank I run my fuge lights 24/7 and keep it pruned back by feeding to my tangs.. I `ve never had mine mess up but I`m knocking on my head pretty hard right now.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
