    We need a trade name for Heterosiphona gibbesii, seen here:
    ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Heterosiphona gibbesii*

    Winner gets a $10 gift certificate to the store and credit for the name. The common names we have come up for some of the species we sell are likely to stick as there is no other reason for this algae to have a common name, and we are the only place to get it. Most of our others ones stick, so start throwing out some names people!

    We were looking at some of the Red Baby's breath plays on words, like baby dragon's breath etc... but not sure if that would confuse people with dragons breath algae. Shoot out as many names as you want. Just a tip the algae is red really, and goes yellow or cinnamon under intense light. The reason it looks a little pink is because I have it under half actinic and half full spectrum in that shot, and I am bad with taking pictures.

    Don't know if I would use babys breath cause of the florial flower in arangement is white and people might think it is white and small. How about ogars breath that kind of seems yellow redish. Sea serpants breath
