Nutrient Uptake:  Caulerpa Prolifera macro algae is a strong nutrient exporter that grows exceptionally fast.

One of the most sought after algae for marine aquariums and refugiums.  Caulerpa Prolifera is sure to be one of your center piece algae for your tank.  If you are looking for a nearly indestructible algae, this is it.  This is a very hardy green algae.  We use this algae extensively in all of our tanks because of its beauty and nutrient uptake.

This is tank raised in a reef tank and will be hand picked at time of purchase .Be CAREFULL when selecting your Caulerpa Prolifera and you will want it to come from a reef tank system such as ours as to eliminate any chance of PARASITES /ICH/APTASIA contaminating your tank . Caulerpa Prolifera cannot be dipped like Coral to kill harmfull parasites so there is the risk when you just drop in your tank or sump you are releasing parasites that will destroy your fish & coral ...  buy from a seller with a REEF system and don't be afraid to ask questions .. Do a Google search for saltwater PARASITES,ICH,APTASIA and you will see they can destroy a tank in days .


If you are not using algae to eliminate your nitrates you are missing out.  In many fish only systems, keeping algae will allow the aquarist to almost eliminate the need for water changes altogether.  Also, many aquarists don't know it but macro algae actually use all of the toxins that we must watch so carefully in our aquariums.  Ammonia, nitrites, nitrates and phosphates are used by algae as fertilizer and are removed from the water to make for happier fish.


Care should be taken when using large quantities of algae for nutrient uptake.  The algae will cause a large oxygen and PH swing at night because at night the plants actually use oxygen instead of producing it, thereby greatly decreasing the level of available oxygen for the fish in your tank.  24 hour lights over the algae or the use of additional aeration equipment are two methods that are commonly used to avoid this problem.  Please also make sure to remove any dead or sick algae from your aquarium as soon as possible because the decaying algae is very harmful for your fish just like decaying food that is left uneaten.


This is a warm water algae that won't shock from typical saltwater aquarium temps! 76 - 84 degrees. Other species may be from cold water climates and will not acclimate to average tropical saltwater temps.


Application: Simply float the unopened bag containing your new algae in the tank for about 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow the temperatures to match up.  Then place the algae in your tank.  Caulerpa Prolifera will attach itself to rocks or substrate.  Trim your algae periodically when needed to directly remove the absorbed toxins from your water or use it as food for your herbivore fish.
