beautiful red algae that features gelatinous, slippery branches
attached by a single holdfast. Similar to Halymenia Elongata in
appearance, but is much more compact, with short, irregular
hand-shaped fronds and a deep red coloration. Its branches are
filled with fluid, much like Botryocladia, to keep it buoyant. This
particular algae is highly variable depending on the individual
species and often features bright orange or white tips. Like many
red macro algae, it is rarely seen in the aquarium industry and is
typically introduced through the importation of collected live
rock. Once established, it is very hardy and will grow well in a
variety of aquarium conditions, even low light environments. Most
species favor good water quality and moderate water current. It is
palatable to most fish and invertebrates.
