I did a search of the forum and saw nothing.
Does anyone know anything about bottle brush algae?
common names can be tricky with macro algaes, I assume you're talking about penicillus sp?
Yes that is another name I have seen used. Any info about them?
Generally easy to care for, cool addition to reef tanks IMO, also extremely efficient at removing nitrates and phosphates.
Good call VA
Thank you, used to be very interested in macros, but the LFS never got any in :/
I had been wondering what plant could be in the DT. This looks like a good one.
Those sold as "purple kelp" are often good in tanks, as well as Halimeda sp., assuming you don't have algae eating fish (tangs for example).
That could be a problem in my tank. I have a blue hippo and flame angel. They are both nipping at the rocks all the time. Still think it may be worth a shot. Seems like a plant or two would round things out.
Separate names with a comma.
