Red Gracilaria Tikvahiae

Red Gracilaria Tikvahiae is a live plant food, and provides an excellent source of nutrition for many herbivorous saltwater fish. If you are keeping Angelfish and Tangs, basically any herbivore, this would be a very good option for a natural food source. Gracilaria Tikvhiae is typically found in coastal waters and estuaries. It's a very common macroalgae that can be found in the Caribbean. It's mostly red with some brown and green coloration. The branches extend from a single point and are long and slender, causing it to have a spiky appearance, hence sometimes be referred to as a Red Spiked Sphere algae. Red Gracilaria does well in well lit aquariums with a moderate water flow. If placed in a refugium, you can leave it unattached.

    Lovely Red Macro

    Posted by Meli C. on 22nd Jun 2017

    Ordered this macro and one of the Red Tumbler, both are Gracilaria sp. Both arrived healthy and seem to be doing well so far. Reason for deducting 1 star is because although nicely packaged, they were both in the same shipping bag, so it was hard at first to tell which one was which. However, by looking at the website pics, I think I can now tell them apart. It would be nice though if there were more details in the product description regarding recommended flow and lighting on both algae. Nevertheless, they are beautiful red macros. Highly recommend them!
